Continuing the discussion from The address of this site is now internals.rust-lang.org:
@brson, I think we should try much harder than this to keep these links working. The two options are basically:
- If we really want discuss.rust-lang.org to be the name of the new forum, we need to set up HTTP 301 redirects to internals.rust-lang.org for the specific paths of all topics that exist so far. This is a large amount, and so it may not be practical.
- Or pick a new name for the new forum. All of http://discuss.rust-lang.org/* would be HTTP 301 redirects to http://internals.rust-lang.org/*, or the internal forum could move back to discuss.rust-lang.org. I think breaking so many links is worse than not having the ideal URL for the new forum.
