The ASF has asked us to tidy our distribution directory.

So I would like to use this opportunity to clarify our archive policy going forward.

The things to note are:

 * All releases are permanently archived by the ASF

 * Only current releases need to be in the main distribution directory

 * The main distribution directory is mirrored around the world

 * This is why we need to limit our use of it

 * These current releases are linked to from downloads.html

 * Whatever we have advertised there is what is mirrored

The questions I have in mind are:

 * How many point releases do we want to have on downloads.html at any one time?

 * If we release X.X.1, do we remove X.X.0 from that page?

I think that about covers it.
