Google support currently broken?

Since a few hours I get

Google “gobject boxed types”

You don’t have permission to access /gobject/stable/gobject-Boxed-Types.html on this server.

And so I invoke devhelp, but that tools seems to do not support gobject well.

For “g_registered_type_info_get_g_type” I get nothing. Is this a general limitation of devhelp, or is it related to the error messages I get like

devhelp-WARNING **: 09:44:53.780: The file ‘file:///usr/share/gtk-doc/html/libxml2/libxml2.devhelp’ uses the Devhelp index file format version 1, which is deprecated. A future version of Devhelp may remove the support for the format version 1. The index file should be ported to the Devhelp index file format version 2.

I have no idea how to fix these error message.

Well, starting from

I came to which works fine.

I noticed yesterday too:


You don’t have permission to access /gobject/stable/gobject-Boxed-Types.html on this server.

Apache/2.2.15 (Red Hat) Server at Port 80

There has been a new stable release of GLib (2.62.2) but the documentation hasn’t been uploaded yet; it’ll be up as soon as the script that manages runs on the new documentation builds.


This has long since been fixed, clearly, and I don’t wish to stir up trouble, but just as a content-management suggestion: Since it seems that /stable/ is now equivalent to /2.62/ in the documentation tree, couldn’t the breakage have been avoided by leaving /stable/ pointing to /2.60/ until after the /2.62/ upload was complete, then changing the alias/symlink/whatever?

Just a thought for the future, since Google will clearly always be pulling people into whatever’s currently presented as the /stable/ doc tree.

Of course. Feel free to fix the script we use to manage the content from uploaded release archives.

…Are you just trying to trick me into rewriting your Python 2 code in Python 3, because a year from now you won’t be able to run it anywhere? :wink:
