This is a feature of web page setup of those groups (make and automake) rather than www.gnu.org configuration; pages of another group like https://www.gnu.org/software/trans-coord/manual/web-trans/Savannah-Homepage.html result in 404 Page Not Found.

To tell the truth, I don't see why modified URLs ("without html_node") should work in the first place.

[field #13]                  Summary: incorrect redirects for manual URLs that are missing 'html_node' component in the URL

[field #14]      Original Submission: When I request a manual URL that is missing the 'html_node' component of the URL, the resulting URL incorrectly adds 'savannah-checkouts/gnu' to the start of the URL. The result works, but the 'savannah-checkouts/gnu' part is an implementation detail that shouldn't be exposed in the URLs. Please fix the redirects and also add a redirect from the 'savannah-checkouts/gnu' variant to the canonical variant. For example the first URL redirects to the second URL but should redirect to the third URL and the second URL should redirect to the third URL too:
