 Whats the problem here?
 We only keep 3 sets of packages: master, latest
 release, and release
 before that.  SO
 that's 4.4, 4.2, and 4.0.  The 3.8 packages were
 removed long ago.  The mirror doesn't have
 the resources to keep old
 Note that 4.0
 isn't even maintained, so we are providing packages for
 EOL releases already.
 You can always build your own packages.  Since
 3.8 isn't tested anymore,
 I'd use
 the git tag for 4.2 packages (when 3.8 fell off).
