Having an archive seems sufficient - those who need old versions for use or research can get them; they don't have to be clogging up the build server.  Sounds great.

We did it with 1.1... the problem is that the build server is getting really full if we keep everything.
And e.g. 1.2 did not change in weeks, so building it (unchanged) and running the tests (unchanged),
does that make sense?

We can keep it if people need... but this time we switch servers in addition, so links will change anyway.

Nobody removed the release from the archive... just the build server.
