  ?? Everything that ever was in 'www.apache.org/dist', is available
  on 'archive.apache.org/dist', so the stuff is there.

  Is there a point in keeping older stuff in 'www.apache.org/dist' ?
  Well after it has gone to ibiblio and 'archive.apache.org' ?

  The repository README's say:

  - ensure that if a release is deleted from /dist/, it is also removed
    from www.apache.org/dist/java-repository (not archive.apache.org)

  Is that a proper bottom line for 'when to remove stuff from the
  repository' ?

  We (apmirror) want to keep 'www.apache.org/dist' lean and clean.
  It should only only contain 'current' stuff ; where mirrors act
  like a cache. Unfortunately, "someone may still want it" isn't
  enough reason to keep it in '/dist/'.

  I'm fishing for simple rules here ; operational rules that can
  be conveyed to projects and release managers...
