If you go to http://tkeskita.kapsi.fi/temp/en.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Ref/GSoC.1.html and check the very last link 'Getting Started' it doesn't match the target of the same link on https://en.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Ref/GoogleSummerOfCode
I can see that the target page https://en.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Ref/GoogleSummerOfCode/Getting_Started was moved. Maybe that is what is causing the issue.

Also I am not sure how the chronical url would behave for search engines if it is a redirect. An other thing is that with it being a symlink that makes it more of a url that people will use and share. It would be better SEO has the latest URL would be linked to more.

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) no originally I thought we would just sym link the versions, this is what we do for the API. However, having less urls out there would be a benefit. The only downside like Dan said was that this needs to be changed after every release. Also I am not sure how the chronical url would behave for search engines if it is a redirect. An other thing is that with it being a symlink that makes it more of a url that people will use and share. It would be better SEO has the latest URL would be linked to more. Then again a downside would be that link to the latest URL does not garantee that those docs do exist if the symlink changes. There are pros and cons of each but we need to choose one that we think would work better for us.

Redirecting to specific 2.xx versions is fine with me. Though we should make it clear which version is still under development, otherwise users might just go to the latest version without realising it has not been released yet and their Blender does not contain those features. So it the version selector and title it could be called e.g. "2.80 (dev)".
