Subject Re: Confluence link on the welcome pages
Date Tue, 06 Dec 2005 17:47:45 GMT
+1 lets define some URLs under geronimo.apache.org and setup redirect  
rules for them

I suggest the following:

http://geronimo.apache.org/issues ==> jira insall
http://geronimo.apache.org/wiki ==> our current wiki
http://geronimo.apache.org/download ==> our download page

maybe

http://geronimo.apache.org/documentation
http://geronimo.apache.org/source
