For *short* times 3, but you should have a plan to get rid of the oldest
when you add a new one to the archive.

>From ftpmaster PoV you should reduce code duplication as much as
possible, don't have a trillion very small packages and dont have
unneccessary many versions of the same thing in the archive. All the
rest we care about is covered by "the usual set" any package needs
And then we dont care HOW you package it, have fun.
