"You may want to read the release notes" link takes you to ubuntu home page

Ubuntu Website - OBSOLETE

Bug Description

On the first installer screen with the language selector you are suggested to read the release notes. Clicking here takes you to a firefox instance but the page displayed is the ubuntu home page. Not in the least bit helpful.

PS this is almost cirtainly not ubiquity, as I think I briefly see a sensible looking query string including the Flavour I am running before I get sent to the ubuntu home page. This is likely a website issue. Leaving on ubiquity till confirmed.

correct, redirects for point releases probably were not setup yet. It was meant to migrate from drupal to django, but in the mean time it became just static url redirects on the apache frontend.

Can someone tell me the rule for the re-directs please?

as in... the installer tries to go to : www.ubuntu.com/getUbuntu/releasenotes?version=14.04.1 and should be redirected to cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/notes/14.04.1 or something?

currently the redirects are done by IS on a one off basis, perhaps we could setup a rule instead?
