So the install guide is not versioned from Pike on, by design, and https://review.openstack.org/#/c/498197/ removed version numbers from guide labels.

That has been addressed in https://review.openstack.org/#/c/497813/ and again in https://review.openstack.org/#/c/498539/. We now have pointers to project guides and information on a minimal cloud deployment included in between "Memcached" and "Launch an instance": https://docs.openstack.org/install-guide/openstack-services.html > I expect users will find confusing that clicking the "Next" arrow on a > distro-specific page (say, ) will often take them to the same page, > just for a different distro.

I actually liked the keystone guide structure but I agree that following the Next links can be confusing to users. Issues like this are totally something we could have a closer look at the PTG, if people are available on Thu. Sign up at https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/docs-i18n-ptg-queens.
