Comment (by bdubbs at linuxfromscratch.org):

 I don't see a problem with pointing the book to anduin and having the
 sources there.  I would suggest that we purge old versions periodically
 with the exception of those versions referenced in stable books.

 If we want to use kernel.org, we might suggest that they always put the
 latest version in the old/ directory and just make a symbolic link, not a
 copy, in the main directory.  They might want to rename the directory to
 something like archive/ to imply latest + older versions of the files.
