      Description

      Hello, we had a contributor suggest replacing a link in an old copyright notice with a version from archive.org:

      https://github.com/apache/httpd/pull/84/files

       

      The current URL is visible below, it appears to be unrelated content or just some placeholder for mass hosting:

      https://github.com/apache/httpd/pull/84

      Question:
      Is this kind of thing permissible at all?

      What if the contributor of the PR above was the copyright holder?
