I disagree, we should not keep previous alphas and beta's post release.
What is one of the first things we have been telling people to do.
Update.  If some guest downloads a previous release, and starts asking
questions about stuff thats happening and such, and it takes 30 minutes
to figure out they are using alpha 1 then I'm going to start hanging out
in the -dev forum more than laga.  This is different than having both
the current stable release and the current unstable release.  

If we do decide to keep past releases then we need to come up with a
solution as to segregating it.  My mirror is running short on space and
2 GB is about the limit.

My solution to this would be to have 2 releases on the master server
(gutsy release, current hardy alpha).  That way the mirrors with the
--delete option will keep strictly to what is on the master server, and
the mirrors without will keep all releases until manually removed.
