Make it easier to download old versions

Description

We need some sort of disclaimer\header on the Downloads page explaining how to download older versions of software. Or maybe even a separate menu "Old versions" with a separate page with explanation and some examples.

wroot, one idea I was thinking was just to create a Community DOC that contains a wall of links to the various artifacts. I could dynamically generate this wall of links and just manually update the DOC with each release? Is that too hacky?

I think we already had similar doc. The problem is that users first go to Downloads page and when they don't find the version they need, they gi to chat or forum to ask. Unless we will add a link to that doc to the downloads page.

The website now offers distinct URLs for every version of an Openfire plugin. Something similar should be done for Openfire itself, and other projects.
