We normally drop the torrents from the tracker around the time a new 
version is released so you should as well. Do you even see any traffic 
on these older torrents ?

By the way,  I think we ( as a community ) should strongly discurage 
people from installing older software specially since the older stuff 
now has known and published widely bug's and potentially remote security 
issues. Ofcourse there are people who will, due to whatever reason, 
still want to get out there and install an older version - they are 
welcome to use the vault.centos.org machines.
