I ran the script again, which fixed the links until a new package gets released.

I wrote a small perl script a long time ago that changed all the links. At the time I probably thought that the pages from the packages would fetch the links from somewhere else.

I can fix this again on the server side but I think that the right fix would be not to change the link on the generate_html package, but to have the header on a single place which gets included.

Looks like this has been fixed for the static pages at http://octave.sourceforge.net but not the generated docs. The header for the static pages now has a link titled "Code" that points to http://octave.sourceforge.net/code.html. This is presumably what generate_html should also put in the file header.

inserts the link

in each page header independent of whether the package
is being developed on subversion, or mercurial or outside
