      Goal: OperatorHub/OLM users get a more intuitive UX around discovering and selecting Operator versions to install.

      Problem statement: Today it's not possible to install an older version of an Operator unless the user exactly nows the CSV semantic version. This is not exposed however through any API. `packageserver` as of today only shows the latest version per channel.

      Why is this important: There are many reasons why a user would want to choose not to install the latest version - whether it's lack of testing or known problems. It should be easy for a user to discovers what versions of an Operator OLM has in its catalogs and update graphs and expose this information in a consumable way to the user.

      Acceptance Criteria:

      • Users can choose from a list of "available versions" of an Operator based on the "selected channel" on the 'OperatorHub' page in the console.
      • Users can see/examine Operator metadata (e.g. descriptions, version, capability level, links, etc) per selected channel/version to confirm the exact version they are going to install on the OperatorHub page.
      • The selected channel/version info will be carried over from the 'OperatorHub' page to 'Install Operator' page in the console.
      • Note that "installing¬†an older version" means "no automatic update"; hence, when users select a non-latest Operator version, this implies the "Update" field would be changed to "Manual".

      Out of scope:

      • provide a version selector for updatres in case of existing installed operators
