: I did this before because of how this mirror-redirector works. the
: news items for old releases are actually broken in a confusing way.

I think you and i have had this disagreement before.

You think it's bad that someone who finds that link and follows it will 
get sent to a *differnet* version then what they thought.  i think it's 
good because it helps people who may be under the misconception about 
what the *newest* version version discover that there is something better 
then they might have thought.

I would rather deal with the extremely rare situation of someone who asks 
on the mailing list "How do i download old version X.Y" by poiting them to 
hte archive; then risk folks who don't know any better downloading an old 
release w/o realizing there is something newer they should be using.
