sloooowly moving, but here we are now with a complete list of redirect
proposals, so people following old links to extragear.kde.org will not end up
with unknown domain name or 404.
As before I propose to only do full redirects for pages of apps which are
still developed. And have any other links just silently be redirected to
((I personally think in a perfect world we also properly document phased out
KDE software, so people can learn about the state instead of having to guess
it is dead and gone. But we do not have a standard way yet, so creating a
random graveyard here will not help maintenance.))
@Jeremy, in January you said you might be able to care for the redirects, are
you still up for that?
Who else might be able to do that?
Find below the list of proposed redirects.
Please also check if I missed anything from the current extragear.kde.org
website that would better also get a redirect.
extragear.kde.org redirects in general:
/ -> https://www.kde.org/applications/
home/* -> https://www.kde.org/applications/
apps/$name -> https://www.kde.org/applications/$category/$name
