Actually, I created an repository and a web site. However, both the 
repository, well the repository is still up, but I'm not going to give 
the link. The site is down and will be down until probably Tuesday. It 
is becoming a non-issue as you can get the information in the source, 
and you can also get the information from Peter Westwood sandbox site 
(it is a really difficult to remember url).

The core team is adding the @since tags to new functions, so you can get 
that information there as well. I do think it is nice to have a place 
where you can get all of the information at a single place, but I think 
if you know where the function is, you can also look at the since 
information as well.

PS: Mine only goes to 2.6.0, I haven't yet added 2.6.1 to the list, 
because mostly it isn't needed. Some 2.7 functions were probably 
backported, so it would be useful to know which ones.
