Old mailing list links broken.

Hi Tanya,

I was spelunking through bugzilla and ran into an old mailing list link http://lists.cs.uiuc.edu/pipermail/llvmdev/2006-January/005137.html (found in PR36).

I expect this link to be broken since our servers are not on that domain. No big deal, just change it to lists.llvm.org:

http://lists.llvm.org/pipermail/llvmdev/2006-January/005137.html

Looks like that doesn’t exist, as the list has been renamed to llvm-dev. Next try:

http://lists.llvm.org/pipermail/llvm-dev/2006-January/005137.html

Success! … or is it? This doesn’t look like the correct post that was being linked :frowning:

Is there some way for us to get to the intended page for these links? (possibly with some mechanical transformations to the URL). It would be a shame to not be able to follow these cross-references from the old mailing list URL’s.

Sean,

IIRC, at some point in the past mailman was upgraded and this broke
the archive links...

Unfortunately, UIUC is unable to auto-forward to lists.llvm.org (which would fix most of the problem). However, the change in numbering is not something I think can be fixed.

So, I think we are stuck with this…

I'm not too worried about this part.

That is too bad.

I guess this still works:

Good thinking! I hadn’t thought of using archive.org! That’s a lifesaver (maybe I should send them a donation…).
