They tend to take up a lot of space.  I've had to delete old bundles
from the archives before to allow the ability to do new releases.

So, we prioritize how we keep old stuff.  We have a much more complete
archive of the RPMs themselves.

One thought: we could publish the manifests for older releases in lieu
of keeping the archives themselves, which would make it easier for
people to recreate an old release.  What do you think?
