Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 189069
old and new versions of web pages exist and aren't interlinked
Last modified: 2009-08-05 14:42:38 EDT
The default page for "fedora download" on google
which is the FC4 version. Probably that should be replaced with a redirect to
If not, at least there should be a link forward to the new version. Maybe the
new page should also maybe have a link to old versions??
At the same time the Xen documentation has similar problems. The old page
link to the fedora core 4 quick start page.
whilst there is a new one
probably there should be links to both from each place.
Some more "old" websites that need redirects:
the new ones are
There are probably more -- someomne should run find and grep on the server to
look out for other old stuff taht's still around
Okay, web-members, I know that many of you have been looking for ways to
contribute. This is your chance.
Each of the old pages needs a redirect similar to:
This follows a basic PHP template. We do not have the option of using
automatic redirects, so this is our best option.
Following the Websites CVS instructions:
...you can perform an anonymous checkout, create the redirects, produce a
patch. and attach the patch to this bug. If you choose to tackle this or if
you need help, follow up on this bug report.

Patch that fixes redirections
Updated 36 files. If there was a corresponding wiki page, the redirection leads
there instead of the f.r.c page.
The following files were updated but still point to f.r.c pages because
respective wiki pages don't exist:
The following files were left unchanged and still don't redirect anywhere:
I'm happy to apply this patch, but I do not have a working sandbox to test it in.
Can anyone confirm the patch works as expected?
We can also just apply it, see what breaks, and fix it as we go. If Dimitris
wants to coordinate that with me (he and I doing the breaking and fixing), that
would be fine, too. I mean, whatever we do will be *less* broken than it is
Karsten, I'm OK with applying and fixing. I'll spend 3 minutes visiting the
webpages and checking if they work.
OK, I'll apply the patch right now and commit. It should go live at 17:45 UTC.
I'll check back in to see if you have any fixes that need to be applied.
We should just get you access, but you need to apply for 'cvsfedora' group and I
don't have administration control of that group. So, for now, I'll apply your
patches for you. :)

Patch 2 that makes 2 links of previous one better
Checked all the links, they are fine. Just 2 minor changes in the second patch,
could you please commit these too?
Dimitris now has CVS writing privileges for fedora/web/.
OK, I applied the patch.
Please back up your local checkout, then confirm that everything now matches. I
had some files with sticky tags that I didn't realize were in place, so I'm not
sure the first patch applied cleanly, although it said it did. I worked from a
fresh checkout for the second patch, and that finally worked OK (hunks failed on
first attempt with files with sticky tags).
thx - Karsten
At a glance, it all looks right to me.
Dimitris, please take a minute to look and make sure everything is good. If
so, you can close this bug.
Everything seems OK. Thanks Karsten and Patrick.
Unfortunately, I don't seem to have the privileges to close the bug.
Great, thanks for the resolution.
