+## Removing old Releases
+
+As part of publishing new releases, please determine whether old releases should be deleted.
See [release archiving policy](http://www.apache.org/dev/release.html#when-to-archive) for
details why. 
+
+With a new patch release, the previous patch release can be removed. For example, when releasing
3.3.1 patch release, we no longer need to have 3.3.0 on the download page. 
+
+Once a release branch is no longer supported, we can also remove the last release in that
line. For example once `release-3.1` branch is EOL, releases 3.1.1 (or whatever the latest
patch was) can be removed from downloads.
