There is a case where the search for document reference when doing a document move fails to find them all. When a reference is of the form:
[[ReleaseDocumentation/CertificateGetCmd][Get Cert with unix commands]]

the link will not get updated if CertificateGetCmd is moved to a different web.

If the link is instead

[[ReleaseDocumentation.CertificateGetCmd][Get Cert with unix commands]]

then the link does get updated.

Also links of the same form in

% INCLUDE{"Documentation/DocumentationTeam/DocConventions" section="Header"}%

do not get updated while if they are written

% INCLUDE{"Documentation/DocumentationTeam.DocConventions" section="Header"}%

they do get updated.

Your example [[ReleaseDocumentation/CertificateGetCmd][...]]: A Web.WikiWord link using a slash instead of a period works, but that is an undocumented behavior. Proper subweb-linking is Web/SubWeb/WikiWord.

So, either fix all our links to use the documented way of linking, or we could enhance the spec to allow slashes as Web.WikiWord separator.

TWiki is a community driven open source project. I invite you to get involved and provide a patch. Or if inclined, hire a consultant to do that for you.
