[Haskell] page renaming on the Haskell Wiki

Tue Feb 21 04:56:07 EST 2006

In making such changes, please bear in mind "Cool URIs Don't Change":


This isn't to say "don't", but where possible, provide some redirection from the
old name to the new name.

To be effective, the web relies on stable links, so that references from
elsewhere don't fade away.  In the end, it is publishers own (presumed) goals in
publishing to the Web that are compromised if URIs become inaccessible.
