There are documentation redirects that have been put in place. For example,

automatically redirects to:

(Where did the version of the url without the 'django-' in front of admin come from? That one isn't redirected but it also doesn't seem to be the correct old url.)

I believe the general problem here has been addressed, maybe not for every old link out there but for the big hitters. If there are old links that are not getting redirected and that seem to be pretty major ones, do report them, but please include the source of the link. Random possibly invalid old urls are hard to evaluate in terms of whether they're important enough to add redirects without context for where the links are coming from.
