Well, it is better than I remember it being a while (year?) ago, my
recollection is that many packages had many, many old versions
listed but now I usualy see only a couple versions.
Hmm, so two versions means one is a development version,
and the other is a stable version? I did not know that, and did
not see it documented on the site. I would say documenting
that would be an interface improvement.
I still think it would be better to have just a package name
(with current version) listed in the index page(s), and have alternate
versions (old, alpha testing, etc) listed on the package's description
