[Box-Admins] webserver trunk/5.2 redirect.

Someone put this line into /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/filessqueakorg.conf
rewrite ^/trunk$ /5.2beta permanent;
Please please please do not do this.
First, "permanent" makes it near impossible to redirect trunk to something else than /5.2beta (because clients won't even bother requesting /trunk anymore),
Second, "^/trunk$" will rewrite files.squeak.org/trunk but NOT files.squeak.org/trunk/ (which we link from squeak.org…).
Third, /5.2beta is wrong and should be rc1 now.
The correct way is this:
rm -f trunk
ln -s 5.2rc1 trunk
And _not_ change the config.
I fixed it.
