It shouldn't be a great surprise. There hasn't been a 5.0.x release
for almost 3 years and 5.0.x specific bugzilla items haven't been
addressed for almost as long. All this does is make official what has
in fact been the case for a while.

The docs have been removed to reduce confusion. There have been quite
a few posts to this list referencing 5.0 docs when using 5.5 or 6.x

All previous releases will always be available from the Apache archives.
