It is not part of the a redesign, it is due to human error. See the
previous post on the help mailing list [1] about it and on how to
search for help and download packages in Octave. For the specific case
of getting a list of functions in a package, use "pkg describe
-verbose pkg-name" at the Octave prompt.

The kind of where I removed all the files. See the announcement on the
maintainers mailing list [2].

Pretty much all of the content is generated automatically from the
available packages. Carlos de Falco has a backup of the scripts that
ran it the in the background. I'm hoping that SourceForge will restore
it (they do keep backups) but they don't provide support on weekends
(fair enough) and the support ticket was only escalated on Friday
