Hi Mark,

I found though that the README.html files which are commonly used to provide further informations
about the releases are not copied.

that was what I missed - thanks!

so does this mean if we dont have a binary from current version the directory should remain
Or should there then remain the last version we have as you wrote in 1) ?

If they should remain empty then I would find it useful to have a README in which points to
the related archive, and I volunteer to create these if there's agreement. There are probably
a lot of users who just link to the dist directory of their platform, and would find a poiter
to the archives useful.

Then I found on the main docu page:
that there are direct links to the previous source versions, but all end up in a 'NOT FOUND';
should we change these to point to the archive now?
