Exactly. I expect to find information about GPS, about GPS use in OSM,
about GPS receivers, about software to work with GPS traces, etc. So I
expect to find exactly what I found. Except that I expect to find 10
useful pages, not 5. If the outdated pages were not there, who knows
what useful pages I might have found!
