Description (last modified by ChaiTRex)

Current behavior

An old ticket link is redirected to this new site, just not to the actual ticket, so some form of redirection is configured:

old link redirects to
HTTP http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/698 https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc
HTTPS https://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/698 https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc

Desired outcome

An old ticket link should redirect to the actual ticket:

old link redirects to
HTTP http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/698 https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/698
HTTPS https://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/698 https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/698

Importance

This is at least mildly important, as sites like Stack Overflow and old mailing list archives that show up in Google results still have comments and posts with these old Trac links, and some of those Trac tickets contain information that is very valuable.

It would be nice if the user experience upon clicking one of the old links was much better.

Who is maintaining hackage.haskell.org?

Maybe gbaz knows, or bgamari?

Sorry. By "soon" I guess I meant 6 months. Should be fixed now.
