Hello Lewd,

I've recently been in development of an archiving system to help Linux Server owners out.
It will contain old and latest versions of Debian,Ubuntu,CentOS,Fedora, and the different Kernel releases too.
Hopefully adding more different OS's like OwnCloud, Gentoo, OpenSUSE, ect.
I'm also thinking about a mirror system for the different packages and repositories for the OS's and their different release versions.

What do you guys think about that?
Do you have any ideas or suggestions?

Why would people want to go more than a few versions back, though? They'd have little to no support.

Well CentOS 5.11 is still supported, Debian 6 is still supported just to name a few examples.
Also people might want to do some research in them.
Plus all because their deprecated doesn't mean you can't use them..
Hell france has been using Windows 3.1 for the communication system to link the runway ground sensors with their air traffic control tower.
So it doesn't matter if it's deprecated. Someone, somewhere might need it some day.

I remember you mentioning this to me awhile ago, I personally like the idea and support it.

Hello Maxi :D

Yes it's the same project. However this time I've got it down.
Just need to get a few UI designs in, finish the backend for downloads, and it will be done.


You should get on xmpp more ;)

To be honest, this isn't really needed. Why would someone want to revert back to an older version of [OS name here] OS? There are reasons that updates come out (e.g. security, or bug fixes), and aside from that, if one user for some reason would really need to go to an older version, 9 times out of 10 they're still hosted on the OS' site. There's my soup.
