I see timestamp 18-Nov-2005 at http://dev.centos.org.

There is 4.4beta tree with core packages only.

There is no link at http://centos.org to development tree. Full mirrors
has only bunch of similar releases (4.0, 4.1, 4.2 etc) and only differ
in updates.

Maybe you may delete whole old trees (like RH does), possibly save old
ISOs. This will save a lot of disk space and bandwith. Think about
CentOS version 5 and 3-4 times per year 4GB+ more data.

IE: = 4 versions per year * 4 releases * 4GB = 64GB per year (!!!)

It seems that (sometimes) less mean more.
