Archive of extentions at time of TinyCore release
« on: September 25, 2018, 10:57:39 AM »
Some other distros host the packages (i.e., extentions) that were available at the time of the release. Is the equivalent available for TinyCore? So for example, an archive of the .tcz extensions as they were when TinyCore Linux 9.0 was released - does this exist? The "Browse TCZs" link on the downloads page appears to only point to the latest/current TCZs.

No, we have no such archive.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

No, I don't think it is. Those extentions are the current ones for x86 9.X - not the exact versions which were available at the time of the 9.0 release.

Okay just checking thank you.

It appears it was offered with 3.X but not with subsequent releases.

Having an archive of extentions from a Tiny Core release has certain advantages. For example, anyone could use the release versions of extentions to reproduce the same Tiny Core installation version for version, feature for feature, and even bug by bug. Reproducability in general seems advantageous, but it is also a paradigm shift and thus is non trivial to achieve. It requires, for example, keeping around older versions of software, which not everyone sees value in. I can understand why the release extention archives weren't kept around for future releases.
