There's also a link to it from the front page, in the "Nice to know..."

I can see the value of this page. If someone volunteers to update it,
that is. Simplifying the list of versions sounds fine, as that would
make both reading and maintaining the page easier. We usually don't
change the supported JDBC levels in maintenance releases, so we wouldn't
lose information that way. And if we ever do that, we could just add a
note about that specific version.

I agree. Keeping track of all tested combinations for all versions in a
single table will become messy. And it sounds unnecessary to duplicate
the information that's already available from the release platform
testing pages, so links would be fine.
