We just hadn't coordinated between ontology namespaces and their actual
HTTP resources. By all means, let us know if you find any other missing

I see there's a bug w/patch filed on Longwell that relates to Flair,
which I just applied. It's probably unrelated to your issue, but you
may want to try SB out of the repository to check.

What precisely did you do in the past that worked but no longer works?

Thanks for the catch. ViewCVS is just the name of the software, it so
happens it could be adapted to SVN without being wholly rewritten, so
they packaged it up without changing the name. Unfortunately it seems
to handle 404's on its own without passing them downstream, so I made a
quick change to the error template to look more like the rest of the site.
