And where do we find this mythical beast of unlimited storage?


Instead of leaving the old versions in the updates repository which
uses space on all the mirrors, I wonder if it would make sense to have
a separate repository for old versions.  The archives repository would
only need to be on the master server or could even be a separate
server. People who needed old packages could enable the repository.
