I don't understand this statement and maybe you mix things up here.
NOVA changed is version from v6 to v7 in 2014.

If you want to use an older version just check out the appropriate Git
revision of Genode and run prepare_port for the ports needed. The port
mechanism will take care to retrieve the proper port revision for the
checked-out Genode revision. Please don't get distracted by the nova
port fetching the current Git, it also checks out the proper revision
on prepare_port.
