I was trying to search for client downloads using key word "download" to search for previous version of the client when I came across that.

That entire page is nearly 2 years old. If you are only commenting on the beta section and every one agrees, we can cut it.
Yes, I'm commenting on the beta section.

In the meantime can we have a section where we can download the previous version of the client? I'm reading from the official feedback threads that there are some specific users having problems with the latest client version. Maybe it could be due to the mobile brand & model compatibility issue.

If there is a place for them to download the previous version that will be great. Otherwise they will still google it and download from somewhere.

I believe iOS can only download the latest version, but maybe there is a place to get old releases I don't know about. For android I have no idea, so I am not the right guy, but I'm sure someone else is.

I've googled and searched for Android version of the clients and compile it here for my own reference. However I have not downloaded and test whether it has any problems. As for IOS, I also can't seem to find it, yet.

someone posted a step-by-step guide on the feedback thread for 3.8. For android to roll back to 3.7.8 you can look for details there

The US forum has some of this defined, but as noted in the thread, not all is defined yet. Since this can differ (slightly?) by country, there may need to be country-specific subpages.

So, would a starting layout be something where each roll is listed and a brief/general description of mentioned roll?

Then, have a small line of text stating how these rolls may differ by country and establish a list of these countries. Or just refer to each countries forum thread that explains this.

I would recommend a base page with the titles of the roles and then an index to subpages for each country to link to their specific guidelines.

Countries are welcome to say they follow the guidelines of other countries and link to them with a note on those pages saying it also covers them.

I couldn't find any information on how to properly split a road (while maintaining segment data and house numbers, checking for RevCons etc.). I would expect to find it in the best practices right next to how to unsplit a road.

If it doesn't exist in the wiki, it should be put there, because it would hopefully prevent novice editors from making improper splits. It should also emphasize to never split a road without experienced (AM+) help/advice

I don't believe anyone has created that content. And yes that would be a great place to put it. Did you want to give it a shot?
