Subject Bad link from Commons
Date Sun, 12 Jun 2011 23:49:41 GMT
The link:

Commons Httpclient (http://commons.apache.org/httpclient/)

is currently redirected as follows:

Redirect Permanent /httpclient  http://hc.apache.org/httpclient-3.x

However, that does not exist; HC 3.1 is now at

http://hc.apache.org/httpclient-legacy/

Instead, there are the following redirects:

Redirect permanent /httpclient-3.x/index.html /httpcomponents-client-ga/
Redirect permanent /httpclient-3.x/userguide.html /httpcomponents-client-ga/
Redirect permanent /httpclient-3.x/tutorial.html
/httpcomponents-client-ga/tutorial/html/
Redirect permanent /httpclient-3.x/methods.html
/httpcomponents-client-ga/tutorial/html/
Redirect permanent /httpclient-3.x/sslguide.html
/httpcomponents-client-ga/tutorial/html/
Redirect permanent /httpclient-3.x/authentication.html
/httpcomponents-client-ga/tutorial/html/
Redirect permanent /httpclient-3.x/threading.html
/httpcomponents-client-ga/tutorial/html/
Redirect permanent /httpclient-3.x/features.html
/httpcomponents-client-ga/tutorial/html/
Redirect permanent /httpclient-3.x/cookies.html
/httpcomponents-client-ga/tutorial/html/
Redirect permanent /httpclient-3.x/redirects.html
/httpcomponents-client-ga/tutorial/html/
Redirect permanent /httpclient-3.x/logging.html
/httpcomponents-client-ga/logging.html

I don't understand why HC3.x redirects to the current version of HttpClient.
Would it not be better to redirect to the 3.x documentation, but add a
warning at the top of the index page to explain that the current HC is
elsewhere?

In any case, we need to direct

http://hc.apache.org/httpclient-3.x

somewhere.

As a temporary measure I have added a soft link from httpclient-3.x =>
httpclient-legacy but this is not ideal.
