I totally understand redesigning, but not understanding the dropping
of the page - what would be a reasonable replacement?

Just for some history:

Years ago Docs noticed that we owned the default local index.html that
came up in the browser (/usr/share/docs/HTML/index.html). We started
loading it with information useful to users - links to release-notes,
sub-projects, forums, help, etc. - and getting it translated.

Along the way, others realized we could have an actual web page to hit
instead of using a local page, which made it easier to make it useful
to users on the fly - reload the page instead of updating the package.
This came in with discussing if there was some value to Fedora in
having an arrangement with a search engine provider to be the
chosen-one for our default search box. There being none, we went with
the popular choice.

I mention that so it can help in understanding how we got to what we
have today, in searching for where to go next.
