The 6.2-pre1 LiveCD was more of a testing release and there has already 
been (I believe) a pre2 release and most likely a UTF8-enabled pre3 
soon.  Now sure if you want to build and test a later preX release.  
Just be warned that these aren't final releases and therefore could 
contain bugs.

I manage all the ftp repos for LFS, HLFS, CLFS and BLFS.  While I would 
love to never delete any files, it just isn't possible because all 10+ 
mirrors need that much more disk space and get that much more traffic 
from people recursively downloading the whole repo.  The files that 
aren't used in any stable version (6.0, 6.1, 6.1.1) or in the latest LFS 
development version can and will be deleted.  If this happens again, you 
can google for the file, and download it to /mnt/lfs/sources (watch for 
bz2 and gz differences!) and continue the build.
