#5310 Wiki links to mailing lists are broken
Closed: Fixed None Opened 5 years ago by ribeiro.

= phenomenon =

Most links to mailing lists on the wiki are broken, like this one: [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure#Mailing_list]

= reason =

lists.fedoraproject.org/mailman/ redirects to the new hyperkitty page at lists.fedoraproject.org/archives, but the links to fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/LIST_NAME will not redirect to fedoraproject.org/archives/list/LIST_NAME@lists.fedoraproject.org

= recommendation =

Since there are too many links, we cannot expect wiki editors to just hunt them down this fast. I suggest either redirecting the links for now or scripting a substitution directly in the wiki db.

I tried to fix by editing "Template:Fplisturl" on Wiki already.


Is it OK to fix?

Yeah, I think we should do both here... setup some redirects for the old areas and also as we can fix up the links to be correct over time.

I'll look at getting some redirects in, but might not be until monday...

Yesterday I made a change to the website team docs to fix the mail list URL, but it is probably only a temp fix.

The redirects for this should be in place since a while ago. ;(

Please re-open or file a new ticket if you see any missed...
