Migration of docs.ros.org content into `/en` prefix

As part of our ongoing efforts to upgrade the documentation on ros.org we are going to be migrating all existing content on docs.ros.org to use the en prefix to indicate that the content is English language and leave space for potential future internationalization efforts.

There are a number of directories on docs.ros.org they will all be moved to the /en prefix and http redirects will be setup to provide backwards compatibility for all urls from those directories.

The work is planned for late morning in California. There is not expected to be any significant outage between moving the directories and enabling the redirects.

After the changeover we will be reconfiguring all of the documentation jobs to use the new urls. This process will take a several hours and in the mean time symlinks will be maintained to ensure continuity.

And we are also going to be updating the services that we’ve identified as directly accessing the content including

If you find any other resources which need updating please let us know here and we’ll make sure to resolve it.

I’m really bad with timezones. Would that already be finished by now (ros-infrastructure/ros_buildfarm_config#184 suggests it’s done)?

Asking because currently all links to docs.ros.org/en/api return a 404. There doesn’t appear to be a directory/symlink api in docs.ros.org/en.

There is one at docs.ros.org/api, but that also 404s.

There is a docs.ros.org/en/latest/api/. Is docs.ros.org/en/api wrong?

Yeah, the migration was completed. We missed the /en/api symlink at the target for the redirect from /api. I’ve added it now.

One other side note is that in the migration we noticed that the latest links were all out of date and were moved to Noetic from Melodic.
