Hi Matteo,

my 2cts: try to fix it either by fixing the code that creates the url
for the  1. Help system URL (even if that would need a switch from
native->qgis or so)..
OR by just plain renaming those directories in the manual (2. doc URL)
(as in Sphinx the links are never the the real html names, but to those
ref-id's). Note that renaming files or directories means changing
paths/resourcenames for transifex too.

only if all fails I would start to create redirects, as in my experience
these are very hard to maintain, especially when they need to work
between different kind of QGIS versions....
