direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Yes. As we have seen, the major changes in the packaging happend from 
0.6.x to 0.7.x. And 0.7.x had 8 pre-releases - AFAIR - before release of 
0.7.0. Yes, the packaging stuff should have been fixed before 0.7.0.
Earlier available -> earlier bug-free.
