I had no idea that page even existed. Google lists 40+ articles, should all of them be added?

comment:2 Changed 7 years ago by richienyhus

Some of the pages that come up in that Google search (Why did I not think of that?) are for individual RFCs, whilst other ones are lists of RFCs that are tagged as matching particular parts of Haiku. I would suggest linking to the lists only.

This list now is:

Is it possible to redirect people from http://www.haiku-os.org/glass_elevator/rfc/ to the standard glass elevator page, as it seems it is meant to be rehashing what is meant to be on the glass elevator page?

Ok, I see. Not sure we can/should do redirects, but we could instead unpublish that page to prevent Google and friends from indexing it, what do you think?

Redirecting from a single URL to another isn't difficult within drupal - so, the question is "should"...

If there are a lot of instances of this link "in the wild", it's probably worth a redirect (or an alias at least).

Replying to richienyhus:

Is it possible to redirect people from http://www.haiku-os.org/glass_elevator/rfc/ to the standard glass elevator page, as it seems it is meant to be rehashing what is meant to be on the glass elevator page?

All of the links on the http://www.haiku-os.org/glass_elevator/ page lead to non-existing pages. It would be better to remove the existing urls and just list all the GE related pages, be they rfc's or not. Many of the GE related pages seem to be old wiki pages that got lost in the shuffle when the site was switched to drupal.

Making it so the Glass Elevator pages are easily accessible would be good if for no other reason than for legecy documentation. There is a lot of good information on those pages, even if it is a little dated.

An index has been added. Not pretty but it's something.
