I think it would be fine to move them into unstable/upgrade-i386 .

Please have Ray set up the appropriate web page links. Note that I've
tried to make the disks-i386/current directory as web-browser-friendly
as possible (look at the README, and the file suffixes). That might be
worth emulating.

[ATTENTION IAN JACKSON] I also think the a.out version of dpkg belongs
in the upgrade directory, rather than in the unstable/binary-i386/base
directory, because I don't want people to upgrade an ELF dpkg to a.out .
Let's wait to get Ian's call on that.
