Proposed change for file locations on download server



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I've been thinking over the way we have files on the server, and I've 
thought of a solution to a problem.

Problem:  legacy-utils provided may not install cleanly to a freshly 
installed legacy OS.  Some packages may have to be updated.

Proposed Solution:  legacy-utils will contain utilities that are built 
against a non-updated OS install (fresh from the CDs).  Updates to these 
utilities will be provided in the updates/ tree for the release.

The only drawback is that non-original packages will be placed into the 
updates/ tree.  After some thought, I'm comfortable with this, as 
individuals that do not have these packages installed will not be effected 
by this.

Are there any objections to transitioning our download server to this 
method?
