    Xubuntu old CD releases missing - any idea what happened?

    Hi,

    I am familiar with fact that old cdrom ISOs are taken to the old-releases site.

    I wanted to download an ISO for xubuntu (specifically 8.04) for virtualbox and I cannot find it in any ubuntu site. If Ubuntu and Kubuntu 8.04 are both moved there already, then where is Xubuntu?

    http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/xubuntu/

    All that's there is dapper! We're missing 7.x, 8.x, 9.x, 10.x and 11.x!

    I found the ISO from a non-ubuntu site, but that still leaves me wondering what is going on here?

    Closest that I've got to finding out is there may have been problems with servers in the past and things got lost.

    There's not anything disturbing in it.

    I'm sure it's easy to fix. Just seemed so odd. I guess old releases aren't a priority...

    here's a link to what should be on the old-releases server:

    I know what should be there - I saw the same link.

    If you're that worried I'd suggest that reporting it as a bug somewhere would be the best option.

    Ok, bug report filed. There's no project on Launchpad called "old-releases" so filed against xubuntu-website project.

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/xubuntu-website/+bug/1188916

    Also, found 9.04, 10.04 and 12.04 in a subfolder called 'releases/', which isn't an intuitive location. Hopefully the whole directory gets cleaned up.
