Even ignoring the gaps (some understandable like the pipex.com-hosted
2.0 releases, some surprising like the 2.0pres), most of the files
there have a much later timestamp than the originals, so it doesn't
seem a terribly accurate historical archive. I feel that this sudden
new announcement of download.koha.org's purpose is a bit odd.

Well, that's a bit of a change from "though LibLime does own koha.org,
we'd look for the comunity to decide what would be suitable as far as
content on the community site" (Joshua Ferraro, #koha, 2008-08-23).
It seems pretty clear that the community would like empowerment of the
community's release managers to manage releases on download.koha.org.
I guess we could hold a poll if you'd like, but why cause the koha
community that pain?

Please excuse my poor memory, but that comment means little to me.

OK - HDL? (And had anyone asked you before this?)
