The best example I can come up with is Sun's Javadoc (the complete API
documentation for the Java library), plus all the associated

Example problems (OTTOMH):

  * Maemo 3 had Python documentation, but the canonical place for that
    now is http://pymaemo.garage.maemo.org/
  * Maemo 4 had lots of PDF documentation so isn't easy to search
  * Maemo 5 has docs spread across the wiki (both current and archive),
    Forum Nokia and so on.

Now, I don't know how to solve this problem; perhaps one task could be
to look at what other projects do about old API & reference
documentation and come up with a strategy for Maemo? (Assuming we
don't have one already :-))
