I don't understand. With this change, we no longer build the pages we
reference here:

Or am I missing here?
Indeed. But this should be fixed, because we should handle this the same
way documentation/releases.html is, with a common one across all
releases. With the current implementation, only master has a list of all
outdated releases. e.g.
does not exist, but
does (and weirdly enough 3.4 too).
Yes, this part is indeed poorly implemented. But I don't think we can
remove the transition branch until we fix it, so I don't think we can take
this patch now.
Agreed, I poorly reviewed it. Thanks for stoping us before the disaster

perhaps we should maintain the overall documentation (for all versions) in
the same branch.. all these branches are making everything much
complicated.. Or perhaps we should split the documentation 'content' and
the documentation config and scripts. I am wondering how other projects are
doing it to support such complex doc setup (multiple versions to support
and to publish)!
I think all our issues always come down to this weird and inefficient
organization we have for docs and common files between doc releases.
We'll need to settle on something one day because I don't think what
we're doing today is working :/
