I just got an idea, that old runs might display a warning header that says something like: This is an old archived course. It's here as a historical reference. See current runs for more up to date materials.

This might happe either, :

  • automatically
  • when info.yaml says so
  • when link.yaml says so

Use cases?

  1. Following a search result – should be handled by canonical URLs
  2. Following a link from the open Web (which is not meant to link specifically to the particular run) – should ideally get to the canonical URL
  3. An attendee going back to a bookmarked course (or archive at a course page, e.g. – should get the original information, with a warning that the info might be stale

We can't distinguish between 2/3, so 2 should get a warning+link rather than redirect.
Nowhere do I see a case for “See current runs”. IMO, it should link to the canonical lesson instead. And if there's no canonical lesson, just warn and don't link?
