I show a 3.0 and a 3.11 branch but no 4.0.  I’m at

The only 4.x docs should go in trunk. If you would like to contribute docs to 
the 2.x and/or 3.x releases, please make pull requests against branches for 
those versions.


During normal development process, the docs should be updated in trunk. When a 
release is cut from trunk, any further fixes to the docs pertaining to that 
release should go into that branch. This is in principle the same process that 
the code follows. So the docs will live with their respective branches. You 
should not put the documentation for older releases in trunk because it will 
end up confusing the user.


It looks like the in-tree docs were introduced in 4.x. They seem to also be 
present in the 3.11 branch. If you're inclined, you might back port them to the 
older 3.x & 2.x releases and update them.


Personally, I think focusing on making the 4.x docs awesome is a better use of 
your time.

I made sub directories “2_x” and “3_x” under docs and put a copy of the doc in 
each.  No links were changed yet.  We can work on the files first and discuss 
how we want to change the template and links.  I did the pull request already.

Yes, I agree, we should host versioned docs.  I don't think anyone is against 
it, it's a matter of someone having the time to do it.

I’ve never heard of anyone shipping docs for multiple versions, I don’t know 
why we’d do that.  You can get the docs for any version you need by downloading 
C*, the docs are included.  I’m a firm -1 on changing that process.

We should still host versioned docs on the website however. Either that or we 
specify "since version x" for each component in the docs with notes on
