still contains the old "Release 6.7" version of the "XWindow System Protocol" specification, however this is out of date as there have been substantial changes to Appendix A (keysyms) in the subsequent Release 6.9/7.0.
Please keep the above URL automatically updated to the latest released version of the X11 specification.
Adding missing QA contact
A newer version has been posted at:
but we do need to update the copies on www.x.org/docs
Suggestion: assuming you use Apache, add to http://www.x.org/docs/.htaccess the lines
Redirect temp /docs/XProtocol/ http://www.x.org/releases/current/doc/x11proto/
the single line
Redirect temp /releases/current/ http://www.x.org/releases/X11R7.5/
which will need updating at each release. This way, the old links will continue to link to the latest version, and people can in future easily link to e.g.
or whatever the latest version is. (Using a "temporary" HTTP redirect is important here, because this way a linkchecker won't complain that our web pages contain out of date URLs if it finds this redirect.)
And then provide an index page that uses the "/releases/current/" link, such that people can easily copy out release-independent URLs.
Note: I see that you do already have apparently an (out of date!) symlink from
Symlinks are a bad idea on the web as they create two URLs for the same page in search engines. Better use HTTP redirects to achieve the same effect!
