Is a 404, presumably because it's {-# HADDOCK_OPTIONS hide #-} so the haddocks don't get documented?

However it is linked to from the master index

...which as far as I can see has links to all modules irrespective of whether they are hidden or not.

A different example relates to source links:

If you look at the Prelude docs here:

Then some of the source links point to URLs like

...which looks like some substitution operation has failed (%01 -> package name, %02 -> version, I presume). An attempt to manually fix the package name and version still leads to a 404.

Some other source links from the Prelude are fine, though, for example:

This is a regression but I don't know how recently; I certainly used to be able to follow links like that back in the 7.0 era, but I don't when it started failing.

I'll pay attention to this when generating & uploading the docs to Hackage for base et al.

There are still many dead links. For example the link to par on the page I guess it has something to do with parallel not being built by default.
