I just issued a PR to add a "Archived version of original LEDE Project site" note to the template for all pages on the original site. (https://github.com/lede-project/web/pull/44) That would allow its DNS to be changed to "old.lede-project.org" with no further change required.
(I'll note that the all the "project related" pages are currently on ACL-protected pages of the wiki...) Thanks.
