for now added redirect rules:

    RedirectMatch permanent ^/cgi-bin/cvsweb/SOURCES/(.*)$ http://cvs.pld-linux.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/SOURCES.old/$1
    RedirectMatch permanent ^/cgi-bin/cvsweb\.cgi/SOURCES/(.*)$ http://cvs.pld-linux.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/SOURCES.old/$1

is this sufficent, or we should rather redirect to new location in /packages?

i mean if you gave old link, then you likely want to point it to the resource available at that time, which this SOURCES.old redirection satisfies.
however this will all go void if the SOURCES.old tree is removed someday.
