Ahh, so I probably don't need to worry. I had visions on having
versions of every package in the metadata.
Yes. No worries. :)
The reason why I kept old builds for some time, is that you can e.g build 5 new versions
of the same package during one
But some random user have yum metadata 4 hours old. And if Copr would keep only newest
package and user will call "yum
install" he will get 404 and will be forced to "yum clean metadata".
With keeping old builds for some time, this will not happen. And as bonus, during that 14
days period, user can even
call "yum undo" to revert installation if he found it broken.
