When I went to FreeBSD.org to check some hardware compatibility lists, I found several hyperlinks on the "Release Documentation" page broken. To get to the information, I had to pick a release number in the "Release Information" pages and then find a hyperlink that worked. To get to the page with the broken links, I started with the "Release Information" page and followed the hyperlink in the second paragraph.

That link leads to the page with the broken links.

On https://www.freebsd.org/relnotes/ links to pages like Hardware Notes going to sites like https://www.freebsd.org/releases/CURRENT/hardware/ were not working.
Several of these appeared to lead only to error messages.
