Description mrT 2021-03-19 18:15:19 UTC
To reproduce:
   from:   https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/ports.cgi?query=audio&stype=all
   click on:  Category audio
      Or on any other Category
What opens is a page that reads:
Page not found.
Oh no. :(

We could not find the page you requested.

Please try your request again, use one of the links in the navigation menu, or the search box at the top of the page.


About two or three months ago I use to get an complete index of a specified
Category ports.
It appears that all Categories are responding this way.

Discovered that this path to a ports category index
does show the category 'audio'.
Comment 2 mrT 2021-03-19 22:09:43 UTC
'Product: Services → Documentation'

Just to clarify my bug report - I am reporting that the main web site 
     www.freebsd.org/cgi/ports ...
for the ports tree does not function as expected.
I don't believe this is a 'documentation' issue.

Near as I can tell, the facility for automatically generating what would end up as https://www-legacy.freebsd.org/ports/audio.html was lost in the AsciiDoctor transistion.

It seems to me like it was accomplished by doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/htdocs/ports/Makefile using ./categories, based on https://svnweb.freebsd.org/doc/head/en_US.ISO8859-1/htdocs/ports/Makefile.inc?revision=47265&view=markup#l15

As such, this seems like it should go over to carlavilla@.
