* i'm assuming that we don't want to modify lib/gendocs_template since it's synced with upstream gnulib
For sure. so the default manual/ landing page & manual will be unchanged from today other than having a link to the full versioned index What url/filename are you thinking for the "full versioned index"? <li><a href="1.16">GNU Automake 1.16</a></li> ... vs. ... <td>Feb 2018</td> <td><a href="1.16">GNU Automake 1.16</a></td> <td><a href="1.16/automake.html">HTML</a></td> <td><a href="1.16/automake.pdf">PDF</a></td> I doubt the old manuals will get a tremendous amount of use, so one line per version seems sufficient to me, vs. a table. But I have no objection either way. OTOH, the date and the direct link to the html seem like the most interesting information (more so than the PDF). Could be something like: <li><a href="1.16/">GNU Automake 1.16</a> - Feb 2018 - <a href="1.16/automake.html">HTML</a> </li> But I don't feel strongly about it. Whatever seems sensible. It might take seeing the page with a few versions actually done before it's clear what's best. --thanks, karl.
