Re: [Haskell-cafe] Final steps in GHC's Trac-to-GitLab migration

Ömer Sinan Ağacan
This look great, thanks to everyone involved!

Some feedback:

- When I click to the "Wiki" link on the left it opens "Home" page and I don't
  know how to go to the index from there. I think we may want index to be the
  home page for the wiki?

- Redirects don't seem to work:
  https://gitlab.staging.haskell.org/ghc/ghc/wikis/commentary/rts/heap-objects

- Comparing these two pages:

  https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Commentary/Rts/Storage/HeapObjects?redirectedfrom=Commentary/Rts/HeapObjects
  https://gitlab.staging.haskell.org/ghc/ghc/wikis/commentary/rts/storage/heap-objects

  The Gitlab page doesn't have images that Trac page has. Secondly, the "_|_"
  string used in the Trac page is migrated as italic "|" in Gitlab.

Yes, I do think we at least want to link to the index from the wiki home page.

Yes this needs to be fixed.

Yes I look at that as a way to keep a finger lightly on the pulse - chiefly for what users think ghc should be doing.

But that's only fixes, not explanations.

>The ghc-tickets list is a good question. I suspect that under gitlab there will be less need for this list but we may still want to continue maintaining it regardless for continuity's sake. Thoughts? 

The gitlab issues list can be sorted by latest update, which should be roughly equiv. But it's showing weird stuff at the moment. (Like decades-old closed tickets with activity 1 day ago.) I guess that's a 'feature' of the migration(?)
