Please find and resurrect the seamonkey transition official notice document from IRC (trimmed for brevity): [16:46:50] =-= Topic for #webdev was set by fox2mike on Monday, August 19, 2013 5:57:25 PM [16:47:13] Callek hey everyone, I'm *really* looking for the new home of the http://www.mozilla.org/seamonkey-transition.html page as was mentioned in https://blog.lizardwrangler.com/2005/03/10/community-transition-plan-for-seamonkey/ [16:47:42] Callek yes I know its old, but its something I routinely have to come back to occassionally as a point of reference for SeaMonkey within the Mozilla umbrella [16:47:43] mythmon Callek: 2005 was... a long time ago. [16:48:43] pmac Callek: hmm... I'll see if I can find a reference or a bug. We've been archiving, porting, deleting things from the old site at a decent clip for the last couple years [16:48:57] pmac this may have been an oversight [16:49:17] Callek pmac: yea, I know lots of stuff was moved around, and my actual searches online can only find quotes in news articles, not our official site/page [16:49:35] Callek pmac: which is why I'm saddened. I suspect we should not remove it outright and have it somewhere [16:49:42] pmac agreed [16:49:48] Callek would also posit we should have a kept-301 for that m.o url [16:49:50] pmac it's in SVN somewhere at the least [16:49:57] pmac yes [16:49:58] Callek yea, I know its in <some RCS> [16:50:00] pmac that's our standard [16:50:09] Callek just if its on the live site or not is what I'm hoping to find out [16:50:10] pmac must have just gotten missed somehow [16:50:19] pmac looks [16:50:33] Callek I wouldn't be shocked if someone overlooked it as a "seamonkey, is dead we don't host seamonkey stuff on mozilla.org" as a skim oversight [16:50:57] Callek (which is true, except for teh few cases where it wasn't --- one of those uses cases I was told explicitly was being removed, but thats ok) [16:52:39] pmac there is still seamonkey stuff on the site I believe [16:52:48] pmac at least some mentions [16:54:51] Callek pmac: oo I know for sure, pages like trademark lists, and projects, etc. still mention seamonkey [16:54:58] Callek (after all mozilla owns the trademark for SeaMonkey [17:04:05] pmac Callek: would you mind filing a bug about this? seems it's not going to be a quick simple fix [17:04:22] pmac I've been unable to locate any history of this file in svn so far [17:04:24] Callek pmac: sure, product::component [17:04:42] Callek pmac: recall it was on mozilla.org (which used to be cvs, iirc and not mozilla.com which was svn) [17:05:03] Callek so yea, its "fun" since this predates the com/org merge of mozilla's website [17:05:52] pmac Callek: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=www.mozilla.org&component=Legacy%20PHP%20system [17:05:59] Callek [not certain if it survived the org/com merge] [17:06:01] pmac Callek: that's likely the issue [17:06:19] pmac it must have been removed prior to the org repo moving to SVN [17:06:42] pmac and me going spelunking in CVS may take a while (having never used it)
apparantly I somehow missed in my searches the result of: http://www-archive.mozilla.org/seamonkey-transition.html so it does exist 'somewhere'
Hi Callek- Would it be OK if we added a redirect from https://www.mozilla.org/seamonkey-transition.html to http://www-archive.mozilla.org/seamonkey-transition.html? Thanks, Jen

If that is true I'd rather this be moved over, if its not true, then I'd love a clarification on what www-archive is meant to be going forward (say over the next 5-10 years)

Callek, I've discussed some more with others and we feel it's fine where it is. We could fairly easily port it if the links need updating or the content might change ever, but it sounds like it won't. Another option is to move the content to wiki.m.o. Again this is likely not the best since it shouldn't change. I've been told that the archive will not go away for the foreseeable future, and now that we have this redirect in place even if we do have to decommission it we'll know that at least this page needs to be kept. I hope this is sufficient. I've submitted the PR above for the redirect and should have it in production very soon.
