Two of the most important for me are
Redirect permanent /support/pay.html http://www.koha.org/support/pay-for-support
Redirect permanent /installation/support.html http://www.koha.org/support/pay-for-support
but it's difficult to list many because:
1. I can't find some pages on the new site (like Discussions mentioned
above) but your webmasters should know where they moved our stuff to;
2. the websites have been switched over already, so search engines and
so on will be removing links or flagging as broken already; and

For example, try clicking the "Valid CSS" footer link which
contradicts the "We have used XHTML 1.0 and CSS that conforms to
specification, as laid out by the W3C because we believe that
usability and accessibility must have a solid foundation.".
There are many problems and this is a bad time for me to be working
unpaid for LibLime at short notice.
