Subject Re: Broken javadocs->site docs links
Date Thu, 06 Nov 2008 21:22:39 GMT
Broken links in released docs might be fixed by adding redirects to the 
website, by editing:

The trunk javadocs should not be published on the website.  We should 
only publish released documentation.

 If all of the absolute URLs were changed to be relative URLs, as in's
javadocs, then the versioned javadocs issue would be resolved.  The trunk javadocs links,
however, would remain broken.
