Default BUG on http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/Preseed -- inconsistent links

http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/Preseed has
inconsistent links.


In the sentence "The Installation Guide includes an
extensive appendix dedicated to preseeding.", "extensive
appendix"

links to http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/en.i386/apb.html

In the sentence "As mentioned in the official installation
guide, there are several ways to feed the preseed file to
the installer.", "official installation guide"

links to http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/apb.html.en

BOTH pages are titled "Appendix B. Automating the
installation using preseeding".


The two pages are *ALMOST* identical. Which is authoritative?

I'm guessing the one on www.debian.org is for stable version, while the
one on alioth may be for testing. Or you could just ask on -boot

Kind regards,

On [1], the alioth version is called the development version (in the
"Documentation" section).

There is an explanation in this thread:

As Andrei already said, you can edit the page by yourself. Also, if don't
feel "brave" enough ;-) for the task, you can contact the wiki editors
(debian-www mailing list) and tell them about the errata.

I'd say both.

The one from "alioth" is the development version of the manual (always
moving) while the other is the official doc for every stable release.
