Subject Re: [jira] [Commented] (UIMA-6228) Please delete old releases from mirroring system
Date Thu, 14 May 2020 12:49:30 GMT
hopefully, we mostly use the -current form of urls (e.g. uimafit-current) rather
than specific versions... 

I think it might be possible to set up http redirects for these, as well.  Ideal
might be a redirect to a universal redirect page which lets the user know how to
get the older version of these if they want (via, going to the archive and
installing some kind of release file, and extracting from that).

might have them in their bookmarks though and it might break the bookmarks and we wouldn't
have nice redirects for them to the current documentation... but hey... I guess that's the
way it goes.
