Then perhaps we should consider making the aggregator the 'sling'
repository, explaining where the old links went in a README, and
keeping 'sling-old-svn-mirror' without a redirect.

Also see the 'Sling docker image' thread [1], it seems keeping the main
repo read-only has some disadvantages we did not consider.
