Subject Re: [all] Linking to sites will break or become misleading overtime.

This is a great idea.  Something that hits closer to home for me is how the
API docs disappear for older versions.

https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-dbutils/apidocs/index.html

For DbUtils, this is particularly interesting since the 1.6 release has
been out for so long.
