Silent change in URLs of Ruby on Rails svn repository

I don’t know why, but everything associated with Ruby on Rails seems to change all the time, without notice, or (in the case of URLs) without redirect.

We used for our svn:external deployment of rails 1.2.6. But that suddenly stopped working. The Ruby on Rails weblog doesn’t contain any information on it (that I can find), going to with my web browser yielded just the front page of the weblog and Googling didn’t help much. That is, until I accidentally found

So, I changed the svn:externals from “rails” to “rails” and now it works again.

    Cool URLs don’t change and cool people make redirects. Otherwise, it’s so annoying…

    I took the liberty to fix a few minor spelling mistakes and to add some <tt> tags here and there. Hope you don’t mind. If I had thought the spelling errors to be significant, I wouldn’t have gone ahead to change it instead of just telling you. They were just missing spaces (in “web browser” and “front page”).
