There are several sources that point to pages of the old pyjs.org website (included in e.g. https://www.google.com/search?q=link:pyjs.org). We should figure those out and provide clean redirects to the appropriate pages of our current website.

Links with hash-notation (e.g. http://pyjs.org#Overview) will be a challenge for the webserver. We should decide if we deal with those at all if that's tricky. Such links would land on pyjs.org's home page - we won't lose users -, so we could limit our acting on Error404s that are raised.

Examples

  1. The discussion in https://groups.google.com/d/msg/pyjamas-dev/uUD5zGyqPTs/RcaR1CY7wTgJ provides a link to a Wiki article; this link completely breaks the website, as of today. To make it work the redirect should look like this:
    http://pyjs.org/wiki/pyjamasubuntuwebkitgtk/ --> https://github.com/pyjs/pyjs/wiki/pyjamasubuntuwebkitgtk/
    Therefore, the pattern for PermanentRedirects of references to old Wiki articles must be "/wiki/" --> "https://github.com/pyjs/pyjs/wiki/" on host "pyjs.org"
