Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Well if that's the case may I suggest you add a symlink for "-8.0" too,
as that's still supported as per http://www.drbd.org/home/releases/.
(And even if it weren't, it wouldn't hurt to keep the documentation
around for reference.)

That was the original motivation for calling this stuff "legacy" rather
than "8.3" -- I wanted to avoid questions like "but I'm on 8.0/8.2 and
can't update because of $reason; does this apply to me?"

Just my $.02.
