Could you make the 2.6.9 source available via http again?

Yeah, that's a good idea.  I've organized the source (including the
latest 3.0.0 release) into the "src" dir.  The version-to-version diffs
are in the "src-diffs" dir, and preview releases are in "src-previews".
The old-* dirs still work (due to symlinks) and the latest files are
hard-linked into the same top-level dir where they've always been.
However, the web page now refers to old and new files alike via their
src subdir, so that they will remain the same as new releases happen.
