Hi Guys!

My name is Antonello Provenzano: in my free time I like to develop open-source projects, mainly oriented to data management ( and and I'm considering Orchard for providing a website to dispatch information about such initiatives.

In such context, some versions of the products introduce or remove features so a documentation concerning them might vary according to the version it refers to, where it's not possible to handle the documentation as a blog or wiki (I presume: I'm not a document writer)
In fact, I would like to have something like
Where /doc/1.5 part refers to the documentation of the version 1.5 of the product, /1.1/system-configuration to the paragraph number and paragraph name of the document.

Is this something doable?

Also, since most of the documentation part of a product stays the same, would it be possible to re-use portions (pages) of another document, changing only the specific pages?

Thank you very much for all the support!
