In fact I remember two different urls for stable and development 
documents. Anyway what I mean is branching for stable-related and
sid-related docs. Having a 2-years or more life cycle for stable,
we could surely consider point releases for ducs (to correct
typos and integrate incomplete documentations, translations). 
Branching is the most correct way to deal with this management.
And doc updates are also considerable for stable-updates.
