This topic is somewhat related to the Updating packages one that has closed after ten days of inactivity:
We are working on an application that uses Elm, but we are unable to use 0.19 yet, mostly because the currently missing WebSocket support.
And this is fine; we’ll continuing working with 0.18. However, what bugs us (and, looking at the last post in the ‘Updating Packages’ topic, we’re not the only ones), is that once 0.19 was deemed ‘releasable’, that support for 0.18 has been completely dropped from the https://package.elm-lang.org/ Packages/Documentation service, which makes it tremendously difficult to look up proper documentation or find packages that we’re able to use in 0.18.
So I’d like to ask the community: Why? What is the reason for stopping to support the package- and documentation information for 0.18, especially because there still is a large group of people that are, for the time being, not able to move their applications to 0.19?
Is there a reasoning behind this that I am not seeing? If not, I’d be willing to spend the time and add a Pull Request to re-add 0.18 documentation on the package.elm-lang.org site (with big warnings at the top that not using the newest version of Elm is a bad idea unless you know what you’re doing, or something).
