             Summary: clean out older releases from the dist repo
                 Key: PROTON-1792
             Project: Qpid Proton
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: release
            Reporter: Robbie Gemmell

The Python bindings for proton-c are published at PyPi, and in order to
allow a seemless install there, a system was added such that if the relevant
proton-c version couldn't be located on the system already then the setup
would implicitly compile and install a local version for use.

Unfortunately, when this functionality was added in earlier releases, around
0.9, reference was made to to download the
matching release archive for installation.

The 0.15.0 package at PyPi instead got the files via the GitHub mirror for
the source repo, and so wasn't affected.

The issue was addressed in proton-0.16.0 via PROTON-1330, to distribute the
needed proton-c files within the generated python binding source bundle.

As a result of the issue older releases have been left at longer than they should, and also on the mirrors 
as a side effect of this, to avoid breaking things for actually relying on the 
bindings implicit proton-c install

Now that significant time has passed since a release was last affected by the
issue, and from chatting with [~kgiusti] and [] we aren't 
aware of significant remaining usage of these older versions by other projects, 
it seems a reasonable
time to now clear them out.

Anyone affected can still use the older python binding versions by grabbing
the appropriate proton release from the archives and installing from source, if 
there is a reason they cant simply upgrade to a newer version.
