Perhaps we should put a link on the home page underneath LATEST RELEASEs
with a link to a scary note along the lines of the above.
ISTM that there are still too many people on older releases.
We probably need an explanation of why we support so many releases (in
comparison to licenced software) and a note that this does not imply the
latest releases are not yet production (in comparison to MySQL or Sybase
who have been in beta for a very long time).
