Sorry if this post appears multiple time. Google Groups told me to try 
again...

Anyway I wanted to ask whether archives are maintained of voidlinux 
repositories. I would really like to have a way for others to recreate an 
environment from some time ago. The easiest way would be if I could simply 
provide a list of packages and version numbers, which they could then 
install from the archive.

Failing that I would have to recover those packages still in my cache. 
Though that wouldn't help if we wanted to install more packages without 
forcing an update.

Or we can rebuild using the github archive. Could be very time consuming.

In any case an archive would be good for debugging purposes, working around 
temporarily broken packages, and for the historical record.

But is there an archive? I can't see any reference to one.

Thansk!

There is no archive as far as I know.  This would take up a huge amount of 
space, and it's a rolling distro.  XBPS will keep packages downloaded to 
upgrade your computer in /var/cache/xbps though, unless you tell it to 
clean out that cache.  This can be useful if you need to downgrade a 
package with xdowngrade.
