That won't work without heavy changes to the download vhost, because the
version on download.documentfoundation.org is X.Y.Z, while the one on
downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org contains a point release number,
and the HTTPd doesn't know a priori which version to map to.

So today stable/6.1.5 is old/6.1.5.2. But the suffix isn't constant, so
we would need to maintain a map. OTOH for fresh the filename contains
the point release, and we have redirections already (from archive to
main not the other way around):

$ curl -sw"%{http_code} %{redirect_url}\\n" \
-o/dev/null -r0-1024 https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/6.2.2.1/win/x86_64/LibreOffice_6.2.2.1_Win_x64.msi \
-o/dev/null -r0-1024 https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/6.2.2.2/win/x86_64/LibreOffice_6.2.2.2_Win_x64.msi
206
302 https://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/tdf/libreoffice/_testing_/6.2.2/win/x86_64/LibreOffice_6.2.2.2_Win_x64.msi

6.2.2.2 is present on the mirror network, so it's served from there.
OTOH 6.2.2.1 is served directly.

If you want specific versions, why not using https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org
instead of https://download.documentfoundation.org . I suppose we could
add some redirects to stable too, to avoid serving still ourselves.

Cheers,
