XUL Programmer's reference should be removed from mozilla.org, as it's outdated and we have much more up-to-date and correct reference on MDC:
http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/XUL_Reference

I started a thread about this on dev-mdc and sheppy, shaver, and enn agreed that this is a good idea:
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/mozilla.dev.mdc/browse_thread/thread/3f4bafbecc948443/351691938127962e#351691938127962e

So we need http://www.mozilla.org/xpfe/xulref/ CVS removed and redirects set up to MDC's reference.

I don't think we want to waste time trying to redirect to element-specific pages, so everything should just redirect to http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/XUL_Reference

Note that there also is http://www.mozilla.org/xpfe/xulref-french/ and we don't yet have fr translation of the up-to-date reference on MDC, so I think we shouldn't remove that one yet.
I will do this tonight.

Ressigning bug to me.

I just blew away that directory and added a .htaccess to redirect to the MDC page.

(I didn't put the cvs log in here because it's like a mile long (lots of files cvs removed).

Please verify this when the website rebuilds in IIRC about 15 mins.

The redirect works fine, thanks.

Per the mailing list thread referenced in comment 0, we need the same thing done with the french reference:
http://www.mozilla.org/xpfe/xulref-french/ -> http://developer.mozilla.org/fr/docs/R%C3%A9f%C3%A9rence_XUL

Sorry about forgetting to update the bug with this.

Ping? If Nicholas can't, maybe Jason or someone else can do this?
