AFAIK they are saved in such a way that for each day there is a
directory that contains all the packages. If a package exists in
multiple directories it is hardlinked so deleting one directory will not
mess with the others.

Do you plan on keeping packages if they are the ones currently in the
repos?

Done. Please tell me once it's done so I can remove them again.

Ok, thanks, I will give it a shot in the next few days then!

Their software [1] is written in python, so can you please install these 
packages:

  python-pip python-args python-clint python-docopt python-jsonpointer 
python-jsonpatch python-yaml

It should be enough to allow me to install the client locally.

I myself am not interested enough in keeping the old packages to figure
out what rules the Internet Archive has and how I could upload all this
data to them. If you are interested in this, please check with them if
they are ok with adding this much data and if so, feel free to go to
/srv/archive/ on orion and upload the files. If you do that I'll wait
with deleting things until you are done. If you need any tools installed
on the server to do this, tell me.

You never know what useful things people could do with this historical data.

What about sending previous years to the Internet Archive before deleting
them locally?

They already host quite a lot of software: https://archive.org/details/software

Hi,

So far we haven't ever cleaned up the archive
(https://archive.archlinux.org/), but it's getting too big and I don't
think we have any use for packages from years ago.

Next week I will remove the years 2013, 2014 and 2015.
