I was building an old 9.1 system to check something out. It was convenience to 
use a 9.1-rc3 a DVD. I got an error saying there were no repositories for non 
releases. Perfectly understandable, so I updated to 9.1-rel and all is well.

That prompted two questions: first, is there a way to have forced the use of a 
9.1 repository; and secondly how long will old repositories be available?
