It's read-only, but in-place to allow to reproduce our older releases
(which have manifests pointing to the old location). We "broke" it (made
inaccessible) for couple of days immediately after transition to draw
attention and catch not updated builds/manifests quicker, but then it
was put back into place. Alexander Sack was in loop on this process.
So, it's indeed a bit of dilemma - either we suddenly break older
releases for people, or risk them dealing with stale code. Well,
preserving releases and doing friendly reminders for some time seems
like good compromise, and if there're better ideas, let's discuss them.
(Need to make a post on Linaro blog actually, just need to figure out
how to do that.)
