[Interest] Missing Qt versions in archives

This is due to mirror’s disk space. If the size of the mirrored folders grows too big, we lose some mirrors completely.

You can find also the old releases from: http://download.qt.io/new_archive/qt/

Note that this is not mirrored, so it can be slow to download.

Subject: [Interest] Missing Qt versions in archives

Hi all,

Some Qt versions were recently removed from http://download.qt.io/archive/qt

Specifically versions 5.2 to 5.8 and versions 5.10 and 5.11 are not available.

A few weeks ago I was still able to download Qt 5.5 from http://download.qt.io/archive/qt/5.5/5.5.1/qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.5.1.run now I have a nice 404 error as the 5.5 folder does not exist anymore.

So now there is no way to download old versions like 5.5 as they are not in the online installer.
And this includes both the offline installer and the source tar packages.

Anyone knows what's going on?

I'd guess that it is link to the Qt Company new "no offline installer for GPL users".
But removing previously available offline installers for versions that are not in the online installer? And even removing  sources? What's the point?
