Description (last modified by teor)

the recent website update causes 404 in the tor-exit-notice.html file

https://gitweb.torproject.org/tor.git/plain/contrib/operator-tools/tor-exit-notice.html

the fix is easy: just add 2019. at the beginning of the domain.

You might also want to enable some redirections on the current website since this html file is widely deployed by exit operators.

Is the main suggestion really the right way to fix it? I think adding the redirect would be the right thing to do. Should this be in some other component?

I noticed boklm added more redirect rules (a771aead680a9d06f7c26b6f26411c25934d2870).

Some redirect to different destinations than the 2019.www... host though.

The src= url for the picture probably can not be solved with a redirect.

The correct way to fix this issue is to fix the tor website.

We need website redirects for all the resources in:
https://gitweb.torproject.org/tor.git/plain/contrib/operator-tools/tor-exit-notice.html

Let us know if there are any resources that you can't redirect on the website, and we'll fix them in Tor.

Agreed, fixing by adding redirects on the website is a good first solution.

Ultimately, once we have permanent homes for the content in the future, we will want to also update the tor-exit-notice.html file so it can simply point to the right places. I guess that depends what choice we pick for each file though.

(I think a redirect should work even for the src= link for the image, right? Shouldn't browsers just follow the redirect?)
