The online documentation is available in two forms:

The dev version
The released version

I disagree with your conclusion regarding who is running what.  I  
think most people use whatever is released, not what is in the  

What you are seeing on the list are people who are very active with  
Bacula.  There are far many more users than are on this list, let  
alone are posting to the lst.

The documentation for previous releases is available at installation  
time (or should be; packages that do otherwise are defective  
IMNSHO) .  In addition. documentation can be downloaded from the  
website at any time.

I would like to have all released documentation online in HTML  
format.  We lack resources (people) to do that.  Join the  
documentation mailing list if you are interested.
