IMO, a book author should expect that an URL like 
http://www.haskell.org/onlinereport/ could change to point to a new 
version, since it doesn't mention a version number or date anywhere.

The most sensible directory structure would be:


Where the onlinereport/index.html says something like:

   Latest version:
    * <haskell2010>
   Previous versions:
    * <haskell98>
