see my 24881_consolidate_relay_doc branch on gh:


  • Add new entry to sidenav: Tor Relay Guide
  • Remove sidenav entry "Installing Tor on Fedora/CentOS"
  • Remove rpms.wml
  • Remove sidenav entry "Configuring a Relay graphically" (but do not remove the page itself to not break old urls)
  • Remove sidenav entry "Configuring a Relay manually" (but do not remove the page itself to not break old urls)
  • Replace old content with a pointer to the new Tor Relay Guide.

This was merged, but rpms.wml cannot be removed at the moment.

Silvia [Hiro]:

It is checked for compiling some parts of the docs. That's why the
building was failing.

Oh sorry, I did test my changes by building locally and it did build just fine.

That was probably caused by "Fix merge conflicts in sidenav"

since it added back the sidenav entry for docs/rpm.

I removed docs/rpm and the sidenav entry in this branch:

would be great if you could merge it since that content is obsolete.
