I won't bet on that ;)

holger@administrator:/skolelinux/administrator/ftparchive/skolelinux-cd$ du -sch jessie-alpha0-release/ jessie-beta1-release/ wheezy/older-alpha+betas/
655M	jessie-alpha0-release/
5.6G	jessie-beta1-release/
20G	wheezy/older-alpha+betas/
26G	total

I'd vote for just deleting those, definitly the wheezy ones…

holger@administrator:/skolelinux/administrator/ftparchive/skolelinux-cd$ du -sch older older-very/
22G	older
38G	older-very/
59G	total

we could save older (squeeze) and older-vary (lenny, sarge & woody) elsewhere,
eg. archive.org.
