      Description

      I work in an environment where maven has been in active use since pre-1.0 days.
      The users and developers here have links to documentation on the maven.apache.org website that points to bad or old documentation.

      Can they be removed, or better yet have an apache url rewrite to the appropriate page?

      Examples of ones I've found.

      http://maven.apache.org/reference/plugins/core-plugins.html
      From November 2003 - so old it mentions ApacheCon 2003 and maven 1.0-rc2-SNAPSHOT
      http://maven.apache.org/reference/plugins/optional/optional.html
      From March 2004

      Both of those should redirect to http://maven.apache.org/reference/plugins/index.html

          This is even worse now that the whole m1 site has moved (the link above is also not valid anymore).

          Btw, the links to the plugin home pages from the JIRA sites have to be updated, too.

          What we need:

          • a list of files to remove
          • (preferably) a list of URLs to redirect old files to when the same
            document moved to a new place, or a document was rewritten. There are
            some in particular that are linked in a lot of places externally that
            we can redirect.

          attached is the current directory listing for comparison against source
