Hoss Man created LUCENE-7924:

             Summary: dynamic infobox on javadocs/tutorials/ref-guide html 
pages when URL doesn't match "latest" version
                 Key: LUCENE-7924
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-7924
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Wish
            Reporter: Hoss Man

Spinning this idea out of some comments/concerns in SOLR-10595...

It would be nice if all the various "version specific" pages we have (ie: 
javadocs, tutorials, solr ref-guide) could include some standard snippet of 
text drawing users attention to the fact that they are looking at docs for an 
"older" version of lucene/solr -- ideally with a link to the current version. 

This page is part of the documentation refers to Lucene 5.4.0. The current 
version of [Lucene is 6.6.0|http://lucene.apache.org/core/6_6_0/core/].

The details of how this could work aren't clear cut -- particularly since for 
any arbitrary URL the "latest" version of those docs may not contain the exact 
same path/file (ie: deprecated/moved classes in future releases, etc...) but 
ideally it would be some very generic mod_include / javascript directive that 
could be included in all generated HTML, that would only "activate" when the 
page was loaded from lucene.apache.org and would only inject the "warning" into 
the page based on the version number in the URL compared to some server side 
configured version number (ex: the way we already have the "latest" version# 
hardcoded in our .htaccess file for redirects)
