There are many unanswered questions relating to pre-launch dawn-era code. Should these questions be answered in the context of the question or answered with updated information referencing the current code?

I don't think these questions should be left lingering in the beta phase of the site.

Should they be closed or answered?

I read through some other meta threads about related issues.

My conclusion is that these questions should be answered if they are still relevant and it is possible to answer them. This maybe the case if somebody may be actively developing for a prior release-version (after June 2018).

All before that or questions with low quality can be marked as "off-topic" and closed, because the code is outdated and may not be stable. If needed we can still reopen the questions.

Deletion is no option, because of dead links and lost content.
