Subject RE: RC Readmes point to Wiki ML Page that needs Update
Date Sun, 22 Apr 2012 23:37:41 GMT
I did a complete QA read-through and link check on the r1309668 Windows Readme,
<https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=119217>.  I haven't checked the one in
RC1 yet.  

I saw a lot to clean up.  The easiest solution would be to cut back the readme to have only
essential information that is important to have there, with only a couple of links to related
material.  

The problem with target links at openoffice.org is that many of those have been turned into
compendium pages, so you have to hunt for the information the readme is saying will be found
there.  The net effect is to make it too much work for the users.

That would work. Then we build a redirection to handle the legacy http://openoffice.org/projects/*
links...

So the table can be a separate page.
