[New-bugs-announce] [issue2867] curses-howto link in curses module documentation gives a 404

New submission from Devin Jeanpierre <jeanpierreda at gmail.com>:

In the curses module documentation < http://docs.python.org/lib/module-
curses.html >, there is a link to a curses-howto, at < 
http://www.python.org/doc/howto/curses/curses.html >. That page doesn't 
exist: it gives an HTTP 404.

I am aware that the last time I reported a documentation error it was 
actually fixed in the unreleased most recent version of the docs. I am 
not sure where that was meant-- I can't find anything but the 2.6 alpha 
docs < http://docs.python.org/dev/ >, where the error is indeed 
corrected (< http://docs.python.org/dev/library/curses.html >, < 
http://docs.python.org/dev/howto/curses.html >). If was what was meant 
(I'd always thought that errors would get corrected right away (in the 
same version), so it doesn't fit with my expectations), then I 
apologize for making a wasteful report. I figured that it would be 
better to risk a bit of time wasted than leave an error until later.
