I don't think adding/removing releases from the compliance page is

Once the trunk code has stablized and its being used in production,
everything relating to the maintanance branch can probably be removed
from the website. When further releases are made from the Trunk, it
will simply be a matter of updating the compliance page to reflect
what the latest release supports.
Actually, I think we'll probably leave the 0.20.5 release online
(although, we haven't discussed this yet). One thing about 0.20.5 and
previous versions is that, presumably, they support more systems than
the one about to be released. IIRC, 0.9/1.0dev will require Java 1.4 or
1.5, neither of which are supported by AIX 4.1 (JRE 1.3 max). For this
reason, it makes sense (to me) to at least maintain a comparison page
(if we don't leave that maintenance-branch info on the FOP Compliance
Clay - 0.9pr will support JDK 1.3. I have long been arguging the need to
maintain support for it. I believe Jeremias applied a patch recently to
fix the issues with building 0.9pr on 1.3. So it should be okay now?
So I don't think 0.20.5 will have any advantage once 0.9 has become
stable. Hence why I think we should stop promoting it once 0.9 is
thorouhly tested and in production.
