Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-docs

The official help site provides a link to the Ubuntu 7.10 documentation, but that version of Ubuntu has reached end of life, and is no longer supported. It appears as though the documentation for other unsupported versions of Ubuntu has been removed from help.ubuntu.com, so the 7.10 documentation should be removed, too.

Ubuntu 7.10 is supported until 18. April, so it will be supported for 16 days yet :-)

Ah, you're right! Sorry about that. Looks like I jumped the gun a bit. :)

Can we leave this bug open for now? Not much sense in re-filing the bug in
about two weeks.

I haven't read the wiki page to know which link is appropriate but the 7.10 docs are still there (just not linked from the front page). It's the link that is wrong (or the site structure has changed).
