Probably not, but in more recent years, we've been talking about how
to distribute non-ALv2 from ASF hardware. Essentially along the lines
of, "this is not ASF software; we are providing it here as a
convenience." We just don't want to mislead people to think they are
Apache releases or Apache-licensed.

Identifying the archival releases that need to be saved is important,
regardless. Maybe the TDF could distribute those, or maybe OSU/OSL or
one of our mirror providers. I've got to believe that a volunteer
provider would be willing to hold the archives.
