In July 2007, the ODMdev site was moved to
a different web server. The new server has
case-sensitive URLs and the original server did not.
Many pages became inaccessible using links and shortcuts
that worked previously.
The repaving approach is to make sure that
new material is properly linked with case sensitive URLs.
Older materials and links are cleaned up retroactively, on
an opportunistic basis. At the same time,
restructuring for improved maintenance is done.
One impediment to the systematic repaving
has been the higher-priority need to bring the ODMJNI
development effort along and improve its materials.
This led to a combined effort with primary focus being on
the ODMJNI effort. As ODMJNI moves into public
beta, completion of overall repaving will follow.
