Under <https://docs.freebsd.org/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/current-stable.html#idp65438840>

<https://docs.freebsd.org/snapshots/> is not found. 


Whilst correcting the current-stable.html page, maybe take the opportunity to update this sentence: 

> … For example, users tracking the 9-STABLE branch should join the svn-src-stable-9 list. …

Exemplify 12-STABLE, with reference to <https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/svn-src-stable-12>

The links referred to as broken are actually correct in the repo.

Why would these differ? Out of sync?

Andreas submitted a patch in bug #253533 comment #3.

I'll apply it, see if it builds, and check that I don't need permission since it affects stuff that the release engineering team usually works with.
Comment 5 Daniel Ebdrup Jensen freebsd_committer 2021-02-15 16:12:05 UTC
Nevermind, I messed up, these bugs are not related. I'll fix both, though.

Graham, can you please provide a patch?

I've had a bit more time to investigate this, and it looks to me like the pages are present in the build, and get built when running either the run or build targets, but they're not present on the official documentation.

Therefore, I'm taking the liberty of assigning Sergio Carlavilla, as he's the domain expert.
