Not wrong at all! .. everything on dist.a.o will be copied over to
archive.a.o. Further, dist.a.o is mapped out of Subversion. So all of those
releases are in there, forever. You can 'svn rm' all the dirs you listed,
and they'll disappear off of dist.a.o. But not from archive.a.o or svn

Discoverability/browsing/trimming/clean (DBTC) is the net effect, of your
proposed change. No data loss.

My request is simply that the DBTC has been found desirable by the
Incubator over the past 15 years, in various forms/amounts, so it would be
nice to see you plant a stake in the ground. Infra can then easily follow
that, without having to wonder/ask.
