Managing your project sites for many projects may give slow you down on every release if you want to maintain a single point of entry for the latest version of each project and a permanent link for each versioned site. Additionally you may want to have a link to the latest snapshot version, too. Every release should also provide links back to older versions, just in case a user landed on the latest version, but want to read the documentation for the version she actually employs.

Therefore you have

http://my-company.com/my-product-one

pointing to the latest version (release). But this is only a link to a folder deeper on this server.

http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/LATEST
http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/SNAPSHOT

pointing to the latest release and snapshot release. And you have the site for each version ever released:

http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/0.1.0
http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/0.1.1
http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/0.1.2
http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/0.1.3
http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/0.2.0
http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/0.2.1
http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/0.2.2
...
http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/1.0.0
...
http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/2.0.0
...
http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/4.23.42

And within each version you have links to the previous versions:

http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/0.1.1/../0.1.0
http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/0.1.2/../0.1.0
http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/0.1.2/../0.1.1
http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/0.1.3/../0.1.0
http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/0.1.3/../0.1.1
http://my-company.com/category-a/my-product-one/0.1.3/../0.1.2
...

Creating the links manually will soon get very unproductive. So we automated this process by creating our smartics Softlink Tool. You may use it to run over your project folder once or start a demon that watches you project folder for any changes.
