I am not familiar with the Linux Libre scripts.  Are these scripts
already under a Git repo?

The method you are proposing seems awkward; as you say, old/gen7 is
not currently a valid URL.  And you are proposing that you set in
stone now this URL expecting that maybe it will be valid in the
future.  Ah future cannot be predicted. ;-)  Who knows that this old/
folder will not be renamed as 'not-fully-free' or whatever.

Working with URL limits the time-travel because it is a really poor
mechanism (and not robust at all) for content-address something, IMHO.

Well, maybe I miss a point or something.
