[Mono-list] Access to (recent) older versions of mono in the download.mono-project.com debian repository

Thanks Timotheus,

To be honest, I'd probably just deploy the pkg file from our own servers
rather than create a repository just for one package. However, this seems
like a bug to me. Why would the mono package maintainers not want to retain
old binaries? I can't imagine disk space is the issue, and it's hard for me
to imagine why else they would not...

Does anyone know why this is the case, and whether it can be changed?
