No need to send a copy to me directly. I'm subscribed here.

Such symlinks would be useless if Yum could not see them either. ;)

One level up one can find both repositories, the old "fedora/" tree
*and* the new "repo/" tree: http://livna-dl.reloumirrors.net/

The corresponding livna-release package is from Dec last year.

When changing file locations so drastically, one should remove
old documentation and any pointers to the old locations in order
to make the new location much easier to find.

If one goes to parent directory at http://rpm.livna.org/fedora one
even finds a click-me.html that redirects to an out-of-date Livna
wiki about Fedora 8 and 9. No human resources to maintain all of
this => get rid of it and avoid confusion.
