Subject Re: /docs vs /docs-2.0

That may break existing links out there to 1.3 specific documentation.
You will have the same problem when 2.1 is released.
Even if you make the alias to docs I would encourage that all "official" links are
fully qualified with the version number, so the links do not break when a
new release happens. It can be docs-2.0, docs-2.1 or /2.0/docs, /2.1/docs

I suggest keeping docs/ to the 1.3 version and from now on
