easily checked by looking for "packages" in the html files.

You may be referring to a given package (Linux or *BSD).

However, you may be specifically referring to the part of the url that
has the version number (because that corresponds to a directory name). 
I suppose if you're attempting to review old configuration details, it
can be a nuisance trying to use the "release" url.  I added a symbolic
link to smooth that out.

The issue with ".bz2" also depends on whether support for
bzip2 is compiled in, or configured with an external program - or neither.
For instance, it works "here".
