Summary0005701: stable manual links
DescriptionConsider the situation when one wants to link to the official manual for the current release. It is available at the following url : http://caml.inria.fr/pub/docs/manual-ocaml/ [^] but the problem is that after the next release this link will serve the manual for the new version and the old link becomes broken (section numbers are not stable). The old manual meanwhile becomes available at e.g. manual-ocaml-312. Hence the feature wish is to create such manual-ocaml-xxx directories (for the latest xxx version) at the time of release so that one can get future-proof links for now-current documentation. (I.e. it means copy current manual-ocaml to manual-ocaml-4.00).
Steps To ReproduceHere is an example that happened to me just today :

Done. We should probably also try to use those stable links in the web site, so I'm leaving this PR open.

The web site now uses the stable link throughout. Note that the naming convention has changed:
manual-ocaml-312 (without the period) to manual-ocaml-4.00 (with the period). The old links
will remain valid.
