The thinking has been to preserve the links under
http://www.khronos.org/registry/webgl/ . Currently, these are checked
out from the Subversion repository every 15 minutes or so. It should
be straightforward to update this script to pull from the github repo

However, the thinking has also been to completely remove everything
under https://cvs.khronos.org/svn/repos/registry/trunk/public/webgl/ .
This is a direct link into the Subversion repository, and if this repo
is preserved, I think it would be confusing to understand the
canonical location of the repository. See below however; perhaps we
could keep these links working via redirects to www.khronos.org.

Suggestions welcome.

Would it be possible to override the handling of all URLs under
https://cvs.khronos.org/svn/repos/registry/trunk/public/webgl/ and
have them always redirect to www.khronos.org/registry/webgl/ ?

The tree we'd like to move is


It would be great if we could test the conversion first. Thanks very
much for your help on this.
