"Current + previous release" is the plan for keeping the packages around;
at some point they are not useful any more, and this plan gives them a
year of life.  We can extend this if it turns out there's people that are
both staying at old versions and needing binary packages to be available,
but I don't think that's the case (yet).

Pkgsrc quarterly releases are only updated for the quarter they are
current, so this seems to cover enough time to cover most usage.
