Yes.  Is the history for this file important?  If it is then we can
certainly preserve it.  But I think for this file we could choose to
trim it down.  It looks like we could start again and it would be okay
for this file.

But wait!  Because I suggest we convert that page to a dynamically
created and cached page instead.  What do you think?

I am going to presume (likely wrongly, but just for the purpose of
furthering this discussion) that the input source is on download.  In
which case that would be the best place for that script to generate
the information page.  We can set that up there.  For example the
mirror processing and status pages are hosted there.
