As Hyrum indicated there has never been an "official" location, and we
are not talking about deleting the archive, just making it more clear
that it is old and there are newer versions available.

If there are things like the Python bindings that people want then the
best thing would be to ask the people that are still actively
providing binaries if they can provide them. I can say from looking
at the tigris logs that the bindings account for a tiny percentage of
the downloads. The overwhelming majority are the standard zip and
installers which you can get more recent versions of elsewhere.
