Hi Richard,

For install, I think we should consider to redirect. Before the move to Sphinx, we had only:


Re-directing them to the new pages will work. There is a one-to-one correspondence for all but
build/test which are now in 7* and 5 files, respectively. Still linking to the outermost
should be ok as I do not think that there will be many links using '#...'.

(*The subdivision is also a bit pointless for Ada and D as it consists only of the texts
"GNAT prerequisites." and "GDC prerequisites.", respectively (in the old doc).
In the Sphinx docs, it is even shortened to: "GNAT." and "GDC.".)

The only except where links to page anchors are likely used is for
"Host/target specific installation notes for GCC".
For them, some like '#avr' still works while others don't (like 'nvptx-*-none'
as '#nvptx-x-none' changed to '#nvptx-none'). But the page is short enough and
it is clear from the context what the user wants - there is also a table of
content on the right to click on. (IMHO that's sufficient.)

* * *

For /onlinedocs/, I concur that we want to have the old doc there as there are many
deep links. Still, we should consider adding a disclaimer box to all former mainline
documentation stating that this data is no longer updated + point to the new overview
page + we could redirect access which goes directly to '..../<module>/' and not a (sub)html
page to the new site, as you proposed.
