: Nope.  But we could add redirects for those pages linked from the
: mailing list archives and everyone's inbox.  Similar to how we added
: redirects when moving from
: https://wiki.torproject.org/noreply/TheOnionRouter/ to the current location.

Why this need to preserve old links forever?  Websites change. If we
migrate from trac to something else, I'm not going back and updating
every website that ever linked to trac.  When we changed from flyspray
to trac, google, yahoo, bing, etc search engines all update their
databases of links within 3 days.  

I'm fine with not putting in any redirects.  If the new structure is
sufficiently logical, people will figure it out. torproject.org is the
largest link farm to trac, we can update that.  Attached is the linking
domains, according to google, to trac.tpo.
