This structure makes it hard to place pages that are valid for
multiple releases - you'll at least need lots of redirects
("/10.2/sometopic -> /10.1/sometopic")

I'd vote for (and
for version-independend texts).

If the changes are small, you can also do "inline versioning" by writing
"in SUSE Linux 10.1, ...." or using the Template:VersionNote.

Well, I'm afraid there is no perfect solution for multi-version
documentation, but there are better and worser ones ;-)

No, I don't think so - namespaces ("10.1:sometopic") have the same
problem I already explained for /10.1/sometopic.

If you want, you can additionally use categories ("Category:10.1")
because this way allows articles to be valid for multiple versions -
but keep in mind that you'll have to add another category
("Category:10.2") to all artices that are still valid in 10.2. (Yes,
many things change, but even more things do not change - so this will
cause lots of work ;-)

Kurz gefasst: /etc/crontab ist IMHO so n├╝tzlich wie eine Laus in
einem Raumanzug - es juckt, aber Du kannst Dich nicht kratzen, es
sei denn, Du bist Gott auf Deinem System. Und dann weisst Du noch
nicht mal, ob Du anstelle der Laus Deine Nase amputiert hast.
