But is current and quite acceptable. There is plenty of
evidence of active development and code maintenance in both the readable
text and breakout subdirectory date stamps.

It's common for external links to degrade over time, but putting energy
into maintaining clean code should be preferred over website maintenance, 
especially when the included and very detailed documentation is the best source 
of usage information. 
His experience is mine.  If the web-pages are not kept up, then, going
by your other points, the best is to abandon them, and expose the
directory-structure to the reader, as in the case of sites made for
ftp-use, with all seen files dedicated to or part of a given release.

The mailing list archives are the next best place to look when searching
for specific issues.
As if the ordinary passer-by had any hope of finding them!
