: i dont think we should have a 'current' javadocs link anywhere.

Now we're just repeating ourselves.  here i'll paste my comment again...

...if you don't think that we, as a project, should linke to something 
like "/solr/api/..." fine - i own't argue that.

i'm saying that we should leave the redirect in place so existing 
docs/bookmarks/webpages/search engines won't get 404s

that's all i'm saying.

you want to add other major version redirects, or update wiki links, or 
anything else, knock yourself out.

i'm perfectly happy with the /solr/api-3_6_0/ and /solr/api-4_.../ links 
moving forward, i just don't wnat ot break existing URLs for people.
