Older binaries?

From: J Wynia <jwynia_at_pragmapool.com>

Both Subversion itself and TortoiseSVN seem to have a policy of only
making the most current binaries available. I'm currently running 0.33.1
on my server and use the TortoiseSVN compiled against that on my XP
workstations. Today, I added a user who needs a client on Win98. As both
tools are compiled seperately for 98 and XP, even though I keep older
binaries, I don't have any to give him. What I usually do in these types
of situations is use the Wayback Machine at www.archive.org and dig out
the older versions. However, both projects have robots.txt exclusions on
the downloads, so that didn't work either. I thought that I'd use SVN
itself to look at the versioned repositories, only to find that none of
the binaries are stored in there, so I can't get them there either.

At issue is the fact that I can't take the server down for the 3.5 hour
dump/load cycle for another week or 2 and need to keep running my current
version. I'm not asking for support of the older versions: I know that
0.33.1 works. I just need to get client binaries for Win98 and none of the
projects keep them. I really wanted to just take care of this myself, but
with only the absolute latest versions available, and DB changes between
most releases lately, those of us who can't upgrade immediately not only
get left behind, but are left unable to fend for ourselves.

Please consider making older binaries available. Please?
