I don't think I moved or removed anything, just attempted to better index
what we have. Unfortunately, what we have is very incomplete.

their URL namespaces needed the whole lot. See
https://svn.apache.org/repos/infra/apachecon/ to browse what we have

Yeah, directly looking in svn is going to be easier than the web
interface.  Lots of broken links to out-of-business event organizers.

They are required to archive all content. However, it would be good to snag
copies in svn.

Unfortunately, non-static sites are very difficult to archive, which is why
so many years of event archives are missing.

listing, so you could easily see which /na2013/presentations, etc.
directories existed (and which didn't).

We could do that.
