keeping various kinds of documentation for our releases on our website, 
including ~ 40 MB for the Javadoc API documentation of the "current" 

We keep past release documentation here (but not the API Docs), for 2 
other past releases - these take ~ 40 MB. 

We ended up keeping our documentation in SVN and checking it out onto 
the website, after a long discussion of pros/cons, ending with this in a 
note from Robert Burrell Donkin, concerning where to keep the 
documentation and Javadocs, in which he said:

Based on this, I would like to keep things as they are, unless there is 
a new conclusion about where things like documentation should go.
