Re: [book] 404 error for URL typo in svn source code

Hi Brian, thanks for your prompt reply. My apologies to all, my typos
are rampant it seems. I also did not note down exactly where I saw the
reference. You can be sure I'll be more careful next time. I made the
effort to report the problem because I wanted to help provide every
possible convience for users in adopting svn.

My searches (find . -print0 | xargs -r -0 grep -i -l svn-book) of the
sources also showed no error, yet it couldn't hurt to add a redirect
directive in httpd.conf just in case others make similar mistakes to

+ Redirect http://svn-book.red-bean.com http://svnbook.red-bean.com

Sorry for the wasted bandwidth. Keep up the good work.
