broken "release notes" link in Activity and Library Bundles page

Reported by: skierpage Owned by: hhardy
Priority: low Milestone: Opportunity
Component: library Version: Build 708
Keywords: Cc: hhardy, gregorio, dsd
Action Needed: never set Verified: no
Deployments affected: Blocked By:


I updated my G1G1 to 703 (8.1.1 candidate). If you navigate OLPC Library, click "activities", click "find activities", you're taken to Activity and Library Bundles (/usr/share/activities/bundle-archive/index.en.html). At the bottom of this page is "To update your system, see the guidelines at the _release notes_ page.

That _release notes_ link goes to  http://library.laptop.org/release-notes-update.1. That server is badly configured to redirect to  http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activitiesrelease-notes-update.1 , which does not exist.

I don't know the intended use of library.laptop.org (someone should check its access logs). One fix for this bug would be to

*Reconfigure the library.laptop.org web server to redirect to  http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities/release-notes-update.1

*Create a page here that redirects to the actual release notes.

The next problem is there aren't release notes for Update.1, but for specific releases like 8.1.0, 8.1.1.

  • priority changed from normal to low

I made the bogus wiki page that the link ends up requesting ( http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activitiesrelease-notes-update.1) a redirect to Release Notes/8.1.0. So the link is no longer broken in Update.1. But the problems with the link and  http://library.laptop.org remain.

Updates to redirects:

 http://library.laptop.org/release-notes-update.1 should point to [[Release notes/8.1.0]]  http://library.laptop.org/release-notes-update.2 should point to [[Release notes/8.2.0]]

I don't think we need the extra level of redirection, and the wiki link is not much longer. I would rather have these point directly to the wiki, but please make sure these redirects work as expected.

These redirects were fixed as above, and the current homepage no longer links directly to any specific version.
