Subject: www.d.o: outdated reference to boot-floppies
Date: Fri, 13 Jan 2006 10:10:25 -0500
Package: www.debian.org
Version: 2006-01-13
Severity: normal
File: http://www.debian.org/contact

It is my understanding that boot-floppies wasn't used in the Sarge
installer, and won't be used in any future installer; thus the
reference should be updated ("debian-installer"?) or removed.

I've updated the page to show debian-installer instead of boot-floppies.

It would be even better to link to a page explaining how to submit an
installation report, but a good link for that currently does not exist.
The d-i project page currently links to the installation guide for that,
which IMO is not a very good idea (especially not for this page) as that
link will need to be updated if the structure of the manual is changed.

Therefore reassigning this to d-i so maybe a page can be created with
information on how to file installation reports and bugs on the installer.

Thanks for reporting this one Justin.

No better idea came up in the last five year, not sure it is worth waiting for 
five more years.

Since the bug report has been reassigned to the website less than a month 
latter, let's assume that's not going to happen.

I've updated this link (and some similar other in the mean time), to the 
accurate $(HOME)/releases/stable/i386/ch05s04.html#submit-bug d-i install 
guide page, hopefully this link won't change to often (16 English pages 
updated, and 146 translation…).

I would also propose to permanently redirect this dummy page:
	http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/report-template
to the same d-i install guide page (will try to find other dummy page like this 
one and propose an Apache configuration patch for those.

Regards

David
