      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
