Description: Hi,

I found 3 pages in the distributed PmWiki documentation, checked in latest v2.2.6, that contain redirects to other pages.
I do understand that those redirects are for some time needed on the pmwiki.org site, so local older installed versions can still find this path. But I think it does not make sense to include them still in the PmWiki versions for download.

The pages:

Regards, SchreyP

They are needed for wikis which upgrade from older versions. The page PerGroupCustomizations existed in previous releases. If the upgrade does not contain a redirect (replacing the existing page), users may still link and read the old page, which could have outdated ot wrong stuff. --Petko November 08, 2009, at 05:58 AM

Hi Petko, I understand. It will be better to do this with a major upgrade when you start from a clean install and apply again your customizations. And thanks for your nice work - again a new improved PmWiki release. -- SchreyP November 08, 2009, at 07:38 AM
