1.x and 2.x releases to be removed by year end
« on: October 04, 2022, 08:41:46 AM »
In order to free up space on our server and mirrors, we will be removing the 1.x and 2.x releases and extension repos at the end of 2022. These releases are over ten years old, and mainly of historical interest. If you need these, please download your copies by the year's end.

The ISOs have been uploaded to archive.org for history preservation. The repos wouldn't really apply to their mandate, nor would they work there for someone running these old versions (archive.org is https, which is not supported for repos). If someone wishes to host these, we will gladly link to them.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

@Curaga: As part of the maintenance project I have penciled in here, a repository backup (onto DVD and Blu-Ray) is schedule for the first week of November.
archive.org has copies of distro.ibiblio.org which are horribly slow to download, but as a last resort I'm happy with slow!!

NOTE: I do not know how extensive the stream at archive is or what file extensions they've stored over the years...
