In more than week, at the current rate, but still it's
worth it. I am not sure if support for MySpell and
Xalan is still buried there somewhere but in theory
there is some stuff there that may have been otherwise
lost during the Hg migration.

I have no idea where the CVS stuff may be available but
apache-extras doesn't support CVS and it's probably not
worth the try anyways.

probably sanction it the "official" historical archive.
Actually .. "the unofficial historical OOo archive"
sounds great too :).
