Dear List Administrator,

Every current Debian Release has a documentation page here: Documentation

Unfortunately, the documentation webpage for the older releases can
not being found. For example, I wanted to read the web documentation
page for Debian Wheezy. But can no longer find it.

Could you please help?

The documentation related to Debian Wheezy (installation guide, release notes) can be found in the page about the Wheezy release:


I am not sure if we should add some lines to https://www.debian.org/doc/ explaining this; so I'm attaching a proposal and CC'ing debian-doc mailing list.

Note: I don't like my wording, I'm sure there is a simpler/clearer way to express the idea, but I couldn't find it...

Kind regards
