Imagine for example that Postgres switches from ./configure to cmake,
this makes the current version of the documentation invalid on
back-branches, still they refer to it. If we target that stuff for
beginners, they may just look into those docs, without thinking that
they actually need the version of the docs with the branch checked out.
