  • Component changed from Uncategorized to Django Web site
  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Version changed from SVN to 0.96

Where did this link come from? There never was a file at before the merge of newforms-admin, therefore I suspect that this link was invalid to begin with.

  • Resolution invalid deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened
  • Summary changed from links to old admin docs broken to new admin doc page links to old versions of itself that don't exist

The link is on the new admin page itself:

The "Get old docs here" links are to old versions of that page (which, as pointed out above never existed).

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from reopened to closed

That boilerplate header is automatically generated by something that is not smart enough to know if a particular page of documentation existed in a prior version. If it didn't you get a "page not found", that's a hint that this page of doc is new for the version you were looking at. Closing as wontfix because I believe that's how I've seen these closed by the core devs: yes, there are some links that go to "page not found" but it's not worth fixing.
