Thanks! It is good to see some progress here.
However we should improve the redirection in such a way that any URL
starting with gluster.org/community/documentation/ gets pointed to the
new site. There was a plan to map all pages to their right new
location, but that seems rather painful to do. A generic redirect would
still allow existing search results, bookmarks or links on other pages
reach the new docs.
Maybe Misc could put that in the webserver config? Or someone could
write an index.php (that was in all URLs anyway, right?) that does the

yeah, I am gonna do it in the web server config, and move that config from salt
to ansible while on it.

So we have:
Redirect permanent /rdo.php
Redirect permanent /presos.php
Redirect permanent /docs/
Can we consider this to be obsoletes now ?
And we have:
RedirectMatch ^/documentation/(.*) http://www.gluster.org/docs-redirect/
I will extend that to /community/documentation as well ?

Looks like misc has fixed this. Closing as resolved.

We should revisit this because we're discovering that there are things that
people did need that are getting redirected into places where they don't exist.
The review of all /community and Mediawiki work and moving into RTD was
dependent on being able to resolve the search issues with RTD - which is still
However, with a focus on moving off RTD and into another system, we may be able
to move what was in Mediawiki into the canonical documentation as part of this.

Could "there are things that people did need that are getting redirected into
places where they don't exist. " be a bit more detailed ?

Could you expand on the "pieces from the mediawiki"? Depending on the "piece",
it can be redirected to the correct RTD page, or elsewhere...

At the very least,
that's marked in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1365706.
What would also help me get more data is tracking on the documentation site, as
right now the redirect is not reporting back on what our highest hit pages are.
