Description: ------------ On the package proposals page: https://pear.php.net/pepr/index.php The text reads, in part: "If you would like to submit your own package, please have a look at the __New Maintainer's Guide__." The "New Maintainer's Guide" link in that text points to: https://pear.php.net/manual/en/guide-newmaint.php but that results in a 404. I believe the link you want is: https://pear.php.net/manual/en/developers-newmaint.php Test script: --------------- n/a Expected result: ---------------- When I click the link, I expect to go to the new maintainer's guide. Actual result: -------------- I get a 404 and must manually find the right section.

Also seeing this... URL: http://pear.php.net/pepr/ <p>PEPr is PEAR's system for managing the process of submitting new packages. If you would like to submit your own package, please have a look at the <a href="/manual/en/guide-newmaint.php">New Maintainer's Guide</a>.</p> URL: http://pear.php.net/manual/en/guide-newmaint.php Error 404 - document not found The requested document /manual/en/guide-newmaint.php was not found in the PEAR manual. Also "New Maintainer's Guide" -> "New Maintainers' Guide"?

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on pear.php.net by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
