 Right, this is done only for modules. The link is really not to the HTML
 but to the source code of corresponding module. Source code for a module
 is a directory with source code (one or more files) and HTML documentation
 (and a Makefile).

 The grass7.html page has a corresponding source code which is either
 [https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/blob/master/lib/init/grass.py grass.py] or
 the [https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/blob/master/lib/init/grass.py
 lib/init] directory.

 However, some pages do not have any specific source code associated with
 them. I don't see where variables.html should point to.

 Perhaps creating a list of those which are missing and what should be
 linked there would be helpful. I think we will need to go back and forth
 to figure out if there is something or not or if there is some general
 rule like for the modules.
