Why? Upstream developers maintain revision control and mirrors of their
software. Why should the Debian project waste valuable resources to
duplicate someone elses effort? You might have a case for the Debian-
specific parts (e.g., Debian patches to upstream), but I don't think it is
reasonable to want to archive *every* version of *every* package that has
at one time or another come through Debian. I know that some maintainers
do, like the X team which keeps the Debian version of XFree86 in a subversion
repository, but those are usually special cases.
