Sorry for bumping an old thread up, but I was looking on the mirrors
for 1.2.2 windows binaries and didn't find them.

I re-read
and this actually makes sense as we've agreed "Support Major
Versions". i.e. 1.3.x is the latest in the 1.x major version series.
But does that mean we only keep the latest version on the mirrors?

My apologies if we've already agreed this & it is just sinking into my
little bear brain today.

TL;DR does it make sense to keep the n and n-1 active releases on the
mirrors, or shall I just point people to  etc? Maybe
add a link on our website?
