Hear, hear!

Please do not delete or remove older releases. Even if buildouts fetch files
from a more robust hosting solution one day, there is still the issue of
older READMEs or other docs that might reference specific older releases by
URL or by name.

FWIW, I had to adjust a buildout a while back as this package went away one
day ...

My mild annoyance was mitigated by the fact that the software (PloneLDAP)
works quite well :)
