Place to manually upload old releases?

This is a continuation of https://gitlab.com/graphviz/graphviz/-/issues/1758#note_373700675.

@Ellson I wasn’t aware of this. I found the binaries also in https://www2.graphviz.org/Archive/graphviz/stable/windows/. Maybe I should remove the copies I uploaded to https://www2.graphviz.org/Packages/stable/windows/10/msbuild/Release/Win32/ then and instead refer to the this place?

OTOH, the Archive is very disorganized and perhaps not something we want to expose to users? In that case we would need another place for manual uploads. Not that I expect this to happen often, but we e.g. have a request for the 2.38 source code packages in https://gitlab.com/graphviz/graphviz/-/issues/1350

BTW @Ellson It’s no longer possible to access the top level Packages directory through https://www2.graphviz.org/Packages/ which was working before. I get:


Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /Packages/ on this server.

https://www2.graphviz.org/Packages/stable/ and https://www2.graphviz.org/Packages/development/ are still accessible.

Somehow Packages/ had lost read permission.

I don’t mind if you manually tidy Archive/ a little, but please don’t delete any files

I did:

[magjac@www2 Archive]$ pwd
/var/www/html/Archive
magjac@www2 Archive]$ sudo mv graphviz/* .
[magjac@www2 Archive]$ sudo rmdir graphviz/

The Windows installer for version 2.38 is now available at: https://www2.graphviz.org/Archive/stable/windows/graphviz-2.38.msi
