Ability to browse LSF documentation via version/point-in-time

LSF documentation is not versioned — the documentation you see is essentially the latest version. We often want to know when a particular configuration parameter was first introduced, e.g. if you are running LSF, is configuration parameter LSF_X_Y going to work in The docs are for, so it could, e.g. have only been introduced in and would not work in

Currently, the only place to glean this information is in the fix pack release notes. That is not always practical, e.g. you would have to comb through all release notes to find whether a particular feature is mentioned or not.

See, e.g. the docs for the PHP framework, Laravel: where it's possible to select an older version of the documentation via a dropdown at any point in the site.

    Unfortunately the corporate documentation system does not provide the ability to distinguish at the "F" level (V.R.M.F) only at the V R and M levels. The team that supports the documentation engine is aware of the request, but there is no time line for making any change to it.
