IMPORTANT: Once a release is copied to the dist location, it must not be modified. This can signal that an attack is being performed. If an error is found, a new .Z release should be made.

Remove old releases

A few days after the release has been published, any older versions need to be removed from the distribution area. (They will remain available from the archive site.)
