Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-16124) Strategy for renamed mailing lists
Date Wed, 28 Feb 2018 17:29:00 GMT


Sebb commented on INFRA-16124:

Note that Permalinks for mails in the original and new locations are directly related.

This is the same message in the old and new displays:

A redirect from /www-infrastructure-issues/ to /infra-issues/ would allow links to the original
lists to continue working.
Once the earlier mails have been indexed, it will be possible to see the entire history.
