Ah. And that link is dead. Same as the ViewCVS link that was mailed about

Actually, that's not entirely correct: they *will* be migrated to GitLab,
but they have not yet: the only repositories migrated so far were any Git
repositories that already existed on the system.

Absolutely. And they will once the repositories get migrated. We went
through quite a bit of effort to do this correctly for Git (gitweb), so I'm
expecting the same for darcsweb.

The reason the link is broken is because the web-browsing utilities have
been hosted at various different paths in the webspace.
I've introduced URL rewriting to the place where darcsweb currently is
being hosted.
