Broken links on "Release Documentation" pages

When I went to FreeBSD.org to check some hardware compatibility lists, I found several hyperlinks on the "Release Documentation" page broken. To get to the information, I had to pick a release number in the "Release Information" pages and then find a hyperlink that worked. To get to the page with the broken links, I started with the "Release Information" page and followed the hyperlink in the second paragraph.

That link leads to the page with the broken links.

On https://www.freebsd.org/relnotes/ links to pages like Hardware Notes going to sites like https://www.freebsd.org/releases/CURRENT/hardware/ were not working.
Several of these appeared to lead only to error messages.

I saw that. Thanks.

I actually signed up to help over there with the docs about a month ago, especially working on the web site. Installed all the software and ready to go but then I keep getting pulled back into "one last thing".

I thought something like this might be the case. I don't usually see any trouble with the documentation. Over the past ten or so years that I have been using FreeBSD, this is the only time that I noticed something broken like this in the docs. Just thought I'd say something because it seemed uncharacteristic.
