Subject End of life for 2.0 documentation?
Date Fri, 13 Jul 2012 13:12:59 GMT
Yes, it's grumpy old me again, singing the same song from before.
It appears that Google et al are still showing our 2.0 documentation as
a preferred page when searching for various modules and keywords, and I
still don't like this. I'd like to propose that we add some meta data to
our 2.0 pages, more specifically:

	<meta name="robots" content="noindex">
	<link rel="canonical" href=""/>

So that search engines will refrain from indexing the old docs and
serving them up as results. This may be seen as a drastic/bold move, so
I'm asking the docs ML what they think of it, and if there are other
suggestions as to how we can make our (older) 2.2 and (current) 2.4 be
the preferred results shown when someone is searching for information.
In essence, this would retire the 2.0 documentation, which should only
be the case if httpd 2.0 itself is deemed retired, but I have yet to see
any announcement of such. Does anyone know if this is in the works?

I won't steam roll this into the docs, but I'd really like if we could,
at some point, come to an agreement about retiring the 2.0 documentation.

With regards,
