[ros-users] ROS versioning & wiki structure

As someone new to ROS I find it very frustrating to have the pre-catkin 
documentation in the Wiki.

I would suggest you quickly move the pre-catkin material to a separate 
Wiki for those still using those versions. Then begin a rolling update 
system for new releases. You might keep three release in the main Wiki 
while rolling previous releases into a historical Wiki separate from the 
pre-catkin Wiki. That might entail too much work, I realize. Maybe a 
diff/merge through a version control system would work? I suggest that 
anyone working with versions 3 years out of date probably can figure out 
the documentation even if it is not perfect.
