Thanks Marcus for taking care of preserving the archive and Raphael for 
providing it on the Apache servers too!

Two remarks:

1) You will see that the archive is missing old builds (i.e., < 2.3.0). 
They were removed from the archive "to save space". If space now allows, 
I can provide the older builds that had been removed from the archive 
(or at least a complete history of Italian stable versions). You 
wouldn't imagine how many people write me asking for OOo 1.x or early 
2.x versions...

2) All the archived builds contain known security issues. At the very 
best, they are unsupported as far as security is concerned. I would thus 
propose the following patch for
http://ooo-site.apache.org/download/archive.html
(unfortunately, the mail clients and the list management software will 
likely reformat it, but it should be understandable and it's too tiny to 
be filed in BugZilla; however, if necessary, I'll post in BugZilla).
