Could you make the 2.6.9 source available via http again?

I noticed you've made rsync 3.0.0 available at, which is great!

However, until it's upgraded (if ever), the buildroot system I'm using to build
embedded linux tries to download rsync 2.6.9 from, which fails since this file
is no longer available -- even though it's linked from!

Could I convince you to make 2.6.9 available again at the above URL?

I realize I could get 2.6.9 by reverse patching from 3.0.0, and could likely get
it from git, but that's not what the buildroot automation wants.
