  5. Etsy’s Experiment with Immutable DocumentationIn trying to overcome the problem of staleness, the crucial observation is that how-docs typically change faster than why-docs do. Therefore the more how-docs are mixed in with why-docs in a doc page, the more likely the page is to go stale. We’ve leveraged this observation by creating an entirely separate system to hold our how-docs.
