Infrastructure: Get rid of redirects to improve performance

(Almost?) all links on end without a slash at the end, while a request for that resource will always redirect to the same URL with a slash at the end, with a 301 Permanently Moved. The overhead of those redirects is barely noticeable now that the site is so fast, but fixing the links to point at the right resource could still remove a good bit of overhead for nearly all requests.

Wondering if this may also be at fault for the bad rankings.

New site should have links with trailing slashes. If any links are missing the trailing slash, we can open individual issues on the new repo, or just fix them in less time than it takes to file the issue...
