yesterday, I tried to install "haskell-pandoc" on a Linux/i686 machine,
but Pacman was unable to download that binary package, because the file
had been deleted from the server, probably because an update to version
184.108.40.206-1 had become available. After figuring that out, I updated my
database with "pacman -Sy", and that fixed the problem.
Still, I would have preferred the 220.127.116.11-2 version to remain available
for some reasonable grace period, like 1 or 2 weeks. Our repository is
$ du -sh ~haskell/*
..., so I guess it won't hurt to keep older packages around for a little
while even after an update. Please don't delete any packages from that
repository unless there's a good reason to, i.e. that they've been
outdated for (at least) several days.
