Well, then the documentation on the website should not be generated from 
the trunk, but from the released version I'd say. We could even generate 
a second set of documentation pages on the website explicitely for the 
trunk of grok.

If there's a strong wish (and I can certainly see that use case!) to 
include the "older" permissions tutorial on the website, I guess we 
could create an 0.10 *branch* or something, where documentation relevant 
for that release is evolving?

Another thought that just popped up: You could argue documentation 
should follow the same pattern as formal deprecations (but we're not yet 
doing formal deprecations).

kind regards,
