I do apologise, I have not been able to get to this item because it is a thread
that once pulled drags me into a range of things I need to sort out and from
experience I can quickly sink a lot of time into it.

I am concerned adding the 5.1 docs and doxygen as the other releases are
currently being handled will fill the server's disk [1]. To avoid this I have
reworked the way the releases are handled to avoid filling the disk. Filling
this disk effects other critical things we have running such as git.

I login into the service level of the machines behind the jail and then into the
docs.rtems.org jail. The access to the service machine is restricted.

Once into the jail I need to teach apache to follow the mount point to the
TrueNAS or I add HTML redirects as the click links. I am not sure which is the
better approach. Both have benefits and side effects.

I then need to update ..


... to manage the new location.

I then need to consider if the other releases are moved to the TrueNAS as well
and clearing that space on the disk that holds them.

Thank you for providing the link. This is my solution I referred to above. I
have placed the documentation in the FTP release area that maps to the TrueNAS
storage which we have plenty of. There is a link (subtle to find) in the release
HTML page at:


Another benefit of having the documentation here is a clone of the release tree
provides you with all the parts.

I hope this helps.
