Documentation Not Finding Github Pages

I'm trying to find documentations for shoulda-matchers, but it looks like rubydoc is looking for the wrong files. Comparing it to the actual repositories, it looks like it's trying to find the lib directory inside of a master directory, though lib is at the root level.

    Can you provide a link to the page you are accessing?

    Here's the link:

    I see now that when you visit the github repo for Shoulda-Matchers, it has
    its own documentation. However, the shoulda repository
    <> links to rubydocs as the official
    documentation, which is where the error exists.

    I'm also realizing now that you're part of rubydocs, not thoughbot....
    which should have been obvious. This is probably a problem on their end...
    So I'll let them know. Sorry for bothering you by accident!

    This is likely a problem on their end. Rubydoc doesn't host Ruby files, but the errant link is likely the product of relative links that aren't properly pointing to GitHub.

    Where is this link coming from?
