Dear list,

This is a follow-up to my previous how-to [1].  I made
some progress and I'd like to share my insights with
the public.

As a reminder, I decided to host the project website
of "mingw-cross-env" at and thus needed
to install the respective HTTP redirects:*     ->** ->*

My previous solution [1] was a bit disappointing, but
in the meantime, I got in touch with a Savannah admin.
He enabled .htaccess for both URLs. Happy with that, my
first attempt was the following very simple .htaccess:

    RedirectPermanent  /

This worked fine for the first URL, but it caused the
second URL "" to be redirected
to "" instead of "".

So I had to change my .htaccess as follows:

    RedirectPermanent  /mingw-cross-env/
    RedirectPermanent  /mingw-cross-env
    RedirectPermanent  /        

Now everything works fine. I hope this little report will
help other project maintainers who face a similar issue.
