Issue #8931 has been updated by naruse (Yui NARUSE).

Status changed from Open to Rejected

If it is http://www.ruby-lang.org/bugreport.html, we can change redirect
target if we want to change the target.
If it is http://bugs.ruby-lang.org/, we can't changet the target for
example to http://bugs.ruby-lang.org/projects/ruby/wiki/HowToReport

I don't think redirect is acceptable, we should correct the problem at
the source. Please reconsider..

I agree with zzak.

Linking to www.ruby-lang.org/whatever which redirects to
bugs.ruby-lang.org/something_else sounds so wrong and will easily break
(it **had** been broken for months). Links might change.

But information on bug reporting is and will always be available
directly on the bugs.ruby-lang.org **main page**, or something has
completely gone wrong. (Right now it links to both an English and a
Japanese howto.)

That's where people should be directed to.

Also, bugs.ruby-lang.org is already referenced in several other places
in the code.
