Description Raffael Luthiger 2007-03-06 16:26:19 EST
Description of problem:
The first URL in the chapter 25.1.4 of the RPM Guide (
) does not exist anymore.

Furthermore it would be good if the URLs are linked.

In the section 12.1.1. Using VIM spec plugins to improve spec file editing

The line that says, "Download the spec.vim syntax file for VIM from

should change to 

as it looks like Donovan Rebbechi is now publishing the file from there.

This guide is being resurrected.  Reassigned all tickets to developer.

Comment 1 split into a new bug (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=591753).  It is an easy fix, whereas the original report will require some research and/or re-working of the section.  From my perspective, it seems sensible to handle them separately.

Changed the specified link to one that exists (may or may not be the same content, but it's a similar tool). Added links to URLs in section 25.1.4. Further addition of links will occur as I go through the guide to clean up the content.

Passing to Docs QA for verification.

commit 02a91a35b2ccb188e0c774a4977afb09d64b973c should take care of this. I see you're working on other URLs, but there's no reason to hold this open categorically.

Updated version is on the web. I'll close this bug and continue to work on updating the guide as time allows.
