FSF GNU Emacs Link Dead Problem 2015

By Xah Lee. Date: . Last updated: .

Very annoyed that the FSF kept changing its links over the years, without redirect.

there's 〈Introduction to Programming in Emacs Lisp〉 at 〔http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/emacs-lisp-intro/〕

now that link is dead.

new one is at https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/eintr.html

A decade ago, i have lots links to FSF's elisp doc. Then, it went dead, then reported the bug, and it got fixed, then went dead again. This went on twice. That's when i finally decided to mirror it on my site (info "(elisp) index") and stop linking to FSF.

see:

So, if you link to FSF in your blog, you want to check every year if it is still good.
