#392 documentation link won't update (double slash bug in link)


Unless I missed something obvious, there seems to be a bug in the way pypi links to pythonhosted.org.

First I was surprised to see that despite successful upload of my new doc.zip file (and subsequent satisfying visualization) the "documentation" link from the pypi page kept pointing to the old, out-of-date version.

The I realize the double slash in the link to the documentation:


When typing


instead, the correct version shows up.

So apparently there are two versions stored at pythonhosted.
This is most probably a bug. Is there a workaround ?

Loosely related:
- uploading an empty zip file did not work for me (#180 how to remove the documentation?), pypi complaining that no top-level index.html is included.
- is there a way, if not of removing the doc, but of removing/editing the
"documentation" link at the top of the page, and the same link at the bottom. I would expect it to be modifiable (or even removable) just as the Homepage link is.

Thanks !

    Apparently I was not patient enough, or this has been fixed. In any case the problem is now gone (both links point to the same page).

    Sorry for the noise.
