I used make linkcheck to find other broken links in the current docs and tried to fix them as good as possible.

  • For some, there was just an URL or domain change, those are easy.
  • For others, there is the same content in another context, I tried fixing those, too.
  • For the last ones, there simply is no replacement, they should probably deleted.

Now I tried splitting it up into different commits for the different "issues" so you could easily only just take some of them, if you disagree with some of my fixes. ;)

Futhermore, there are some additional broken links that I don't know how to fix, one of the devs should probably look through them:

@amol- amol- merged commit 716fbca into TurboGears:master Mar 28, 2013
@moschlar moschlar deleted the unknown repository branch Mar 28, 2013

FYI: As I found out I am able to do that, I just triggered a rebuild at rtfd!

But maybe you should update the definition of the rtfd2.2.2 branch now!

amol- commented Mar 30, 2013

I meant to update rtfd2.2.2 when latest gets switched to 2.3, until then all links should point to /latest so should satisfy most users.


Then you maybe should update the link for 2.2 Documentation (2.2 Installation) at and the redirect from 😉
