Bug#831435: www.debian.org: Link to the patch tracker broken


 I currently can't deploy it but will keep it in mind for later.

 If such URL schemes are changed they break not only the packages site
but all external links pointing to it.  It is good to get the links in
the sites linking to it corrected - but it would be also very useful to
add a redirect that handles that; from what I can see only the /summary/
part of the URL got removed?  That should be doable in a single redirect
line and unbreak all the external links, not only the packages website.

 I'm not questioning the need for the need in the change, there for sure
is good reasons behind that, but please add defensive redirects for such
cases. :)  Not sure if you are involved with the patch tracker, I
dropped the note also in the #debian-qa IRC channel, from what I can
tell the patch tracker is in the field of the QA team.
