New issue 94117 by "Link to this revision" on

Documentation on should have a button somewhere on each page that says something like, "Link to this revision of this page". Clicking it would give the user a stable URL that will always show the page as it was at that moment, even as the page gets updated over time.

Ideally, any links _from_ that page to other parts of would also be shown at the same revision.

# Motivation

RFCs are intended to be point-in-time documents that don't change after their acceptance. However, RFCs frequently link to other pages on that _are_ intended to evolve over time. That means that future readers of an RFC may follow a link and see something different than what the stakeholders who approved the RFC saw. Or they may even get a 404.

If we had an easy way to link to documentation at a point in time, we could avoid those problems by setting a policy that RFCs should always link to a specific revision.

We've narrowed the scope of enhancements we can make to infrastructure, so closing this issue. Feel free to re-open if it feels very important.
