where is linux-image-4.1.0-0.bpo.2-rt-686-pae

hi all,

following an advice on the IRC channel, I'm posting here.

I'm running a debian 8 updated.
I did install a kernel from backports a while ago. More precisely, this one : linux-image-4.1.0-0.bpo.2-rt-686-pae.

On another computer, I was looking to install the same kernel but I can't find it anymore here : https://packages.debian.org/jessie-backports/kernel/
The new version (4.2.x) doesn't provide a RT flavour so I'm a bit stuck since it's installed on one of my computer, but I can't install it on another computer.
I know that as a workaround, I can still get the .deb from this computer's /var/cache/apt/archives/ and install it on the other computer.
That said, it looks a bit dirty and not sustainable on a long term view.

Can someone tell me if that's usual in backport that some package are removed without an equivalent package provided (I'm quite new to backport), or if it's unusual and due to something specific such as a security issue in this package (or another thing) that I would have missed?

Or, is there another specific place I can get this package from?
