Need link for Context-sensitive help content to convert to text format.

I'd be willing to work on the Context-sensitive help however the trac ticket ( http://trac.rephial.org/ticket/13 ) link for what needs to be done ( http://ajps.mine.nu/angband/wiki/Help#s1_2 ) isn't working for me.

Any backup's or an updated link available?

To be honest there's not that much to it. archive.org has this copy:

Ok, thanks.

Here is my initial plan:

1. List of all commands, as well as the choices for each. To include new game, character creation, birth options, and gameplay.

2. List of in game systems like resists, status effects, stealth, visibility, etc. that do not have commands, and explanations for each of those.

3. List of things that commonly cause player deaths, and some basic hint's at how to avoid those, basic strategy.

The previous help systems became out of date, as vanilla continues to evolve. I'm wondering if there is a way around this problem.

Here is a seed start on this. I have other things I need to do and will not be working on it anymore. I hope it helps someone who takes this on in the future. Either by providing a starting point, or showing an example that can be contrasted against to provide a different, better solution.
