Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 49569] New: Documentation for previous versions should be available online
Date Wed, 07 Jul 2010 22:26:02 GMT

           Summary: Documentation for previous versions should be
                    available online
           Product: Ant
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation

At the top of the online Ant manual, it says:

"This is the manual for version 1.8.1 of Apache Ant. If your version of Ant (as
verified with ant -version) is older or newer than this version then this is
not the correct manual set. Please use the documentation appropriate to your
current version."

That's not particularly helpful unless there's a way to get to the
documentation for previous versions.  For people who installed from source,
that's not a big deal, but for people who get the software preinstalled as part
of an OS, that documentation is often unavailable without hunting down an old
copy of the source tarball and extracting it.

Also, the installed manual pages for things like build.xml(5) contain links to
the HTML manual, but link directly to the latest version.  It would be useful
for those man pages to link to the online HTML manual appropriate for a given
version of the tool.
