That's exactly what we plan to do for the time being, archiving pdfs and
html. But for me it doesn't really solve the fundamental problem. We'd
love Floss Manuals to be the repository for all our documentation, not
just the most recent.
I think it's important that we can let our community and documentation
team retrospectively improve old manuals, update old links (great
example being our new mailing lists and support forums - we still help
folks with an old version :) ) etc. I think there's also some use in
comparing versions side by side and perhaps even updating multiple
versions at once...
Okay, well, I'm in 'wouldn't it be nice' land now, but consider it a
feature request for Booki ;)
Best, Adam T
p.s. I have maintainer options now - thanks!
