Description Craig Rodrigues freebsd_committer 2011-09-13 08:40:11 UTC
	Remove the FreeBSD Jumpstart article from docs.
        This article was written over 10 years ago, and the information
        has gotten stale. Some of the steps in this article no longer
        work.  For example, the FreeBSD Release team no longer
        produces installation floppy images in the FreeBSD release.
        I talked with Alfred, and he agreed that the information in
        this article is outdated and should probably be removed.

        This article has been superceded by a new section in the FreeBSD
        Handbook.  This section will be visible here:

        http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/network-pxe-nfs.html

        At the moment, a draft version is visible here:

Maybe we should add a simple HTML redirect for a short time until the 
search engines adapt?

Hi,

If the doc team is fine with an HTML redirect, then I am fine with it.  I
don't know how to code one up in Docbook SGML.

From-To: freebsd-doc->gjb

Make this mine.  I promised rodrigc I'd look at his (though many months ago...).
Comment 4 Glen Barber freebsd_committer 2012-05-19 23:24:59 UTC
State Changed
From-To: open->patched

A change was committed that warns users that the PXE article is outdated 
and that the chapter in the Handbook should be used. 

State changed to 'patched' as a reminder to remove the old article after 
a few weeks.

The pxe article has been removed from the tree. 

(Sorry for the delay.)
Comment 8 Wolfram Schneider freebsd_committer 2017-10-12 15:43:25 UTC
There is still a danish version of the article

doc/da_DK.ISO8859-1/articles/pxe

I think it should be removed too.
