           That would be an idea. I'm concerned by the fact that lpf is
   bound to Free Software. There is no point mirroring information other
   than doing it in such a way that it's not linked to Free Software. 
   I'm under the impression that the lpf is very much associated to the
   Free Software movement. Am I wrong ? 

The League for Programming Freedom was founded in 1989 to fight Apple and 
Lotus "look and feel" software user-interface patents.  Legally the LPF is 
independent from the FSF and GNU.  See
