Unable to download ROOT .qch reference guide for use in Qt Creator

Hello. I’m not sure if this is the forum for this. Please point me in the right direction if not. My problem is not with ROOT per se but with a dead link on the main ROOT reference page . The link to the ROOT.qch.gz file for use in Qt Creator/Assistant is dead. The linking web page is https://root.cern/reference/ and the link address provided to download the .qch file is https://root.cern/doc/master/ROOT.qch.gz

I have already tried clearing the browser cache. Does anyone know how to get the link mended?

ROOT Version: Not Applicable
Platform: Linux Mint 21.3 Cinnamon
Internet Browser: Google Chrome, version 126.0.6478.126
Broken URL: https://root.cern/doc/master/ROOT.qch.gz

It seems that both qch and tag files are missing.

@couet might know the reason. Maybe something went wrong in the job that builds those files and posts them into the website.

Thank you, I’ve opened an issue on Github

I will check. I do not know a priori what happened.

These PRs should fix the generation of tag and qch files for the master and 6.32 branches:
