Default old redhat rpms list/mirrors

Hello,

To have proper versionned obsolete while allowing for upgrade paths from
very old redhat distro, sometime I need the list of the packages in
pre-fedora era, to find the latest version. I have browsed through the
net, but haven't found that (or a mirror still mirroring old releases).
Are you aware of such resource? Ideally it would date back to redhat 5,
I don't think older releases are worth it.

This is not only a theoretical issue, since having obsoletes for old
fedora/redhat releases may help for upgrades from RHEL versions to
fedora (I know it is not supported, but it would help packagers trying
to have it work).

Theoretically, they should be available at
ftp://archive.download.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/

Indeed, for me too with lftp, but not with firefox. Strange.

I have the disks for some old distros (6.1, 6.2, 7.x, IIRC). If it is
useful for you, I can try a ls -Rl on them (assuming the disks can still
be read...) and send you the results.

I used lftp, it was fine, thanks.
