Apparently, I was mistaken on how this works.

Anyway, who is going to re-write our mirroring scripts so that we aren't
stripping stuff anymore?  After all, we're still "shipping" 1.2 ISO
images under /historical, and I can guarantee you that the source code
for all of this stuff isn't available from us.  Good examples of this
are packages that no longer merge due to missing distfiles when using a
release's portage snapshot instead of a current tree.  This happens
every release, so I know that we aren't keeping all of this stuff.

We will need to work on compliance ourselves with this, before the FSF
comes knocking on our door.
