[Libreoffice] [ANN] Modified directory layout for http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

Hi *,

due to legitimate complaints from LibO packagers, I've tweaked the
dir layout of our _archival_ site - *current versions are not

The layout collects all artifacts of a given version below the full
numeric version identifier (e.g. for 3.4.1 final), including
boxed and portable version, plus src tarballs:
├── box
├── deb
│   ├── x86
│   └── x86_64
├── mac
│   ├── ppc
│   └── x86
├── portable
├── rpm
│   ├── x86
│   └── x86_64
├── src
└── win
    └── x86

Going forward, each mirrored stable release in
http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/stable will get
linked over to the archival tree already, and every mirrored testing
release will have at least the src tarballs linked there (this is
due to the fact that, from the binary names, we chop the "-rcXY"
part on release - so I can't copy rc binaries to old/, because it
might become the release).

Packagers can now safely use links to this archival tree, without
tarballs moving there anymore from the stable tree.
