Ah, yes, i understand this issue now, making it consistent across
various versions
would be a pain.

Either way, i would recommend a new directory entry to /doc/ , that would be
/doc/contrib , which will contain user contributed documentations. And should
be with a Post Script in README file

" Genode labs doesn't monitor the consistency and validity of the
documents provided here, these are contribute by the community for
educational purpose "
