That's really bad.

I've seen rpms being deleted over the last days and think it is great to
have CentOS require only little mirror space, even if then only the release
level and e.g. newest update levels are available. It is ok to go to
a special site for debugging purposes and older levels.

With src.rpms: they vanished, got copied out several times and other stuff,
so I wasn't sure where the problem really was.

thanks and best regards,
