At this point, I think and should be archived.

>From the instructions:

"Once a release is placed under www.apache.org/dist/ it will
automatically be copied over to archive.apache.org and held there
permanently: even after it is deleted from www.apache.org. So, all
that is required to archive any mirrored release is to delete it from
www.apache.org. Adding a permanent redirect for the release to the
.htaccess file should be considered."

The directions at the end are for releases that were pre-mirror or
were not mirrored for some reason.

So, the dirs should be removed, redirects put in place and the
downloads page updated to reflect their archival status (or the and pages updated to point to the archives.)
