We store the sources on https://distfiles.alpinelinux.org<https://protect-us.mimecast.com/s/I8yoC4xGJyuBNE2ECMps-R?domain=distfiles.alpinelinux.org>.

The files from edge are removed after some time. They are found here:
https://distfiles.alpinelinux.org/distfiles<https://protect-us.mimecast.com/s/60wFC5yKgziZm3P3HN2QHV?domain=distfiles.alpinelinux.org>

The sources for stable branches are stored "forever". You can find the
sources for v3.8 here:
https://distfiles.alpinelinux.org/distfiles/v3.8<https://protect-us.mimecast.com/s/2doPC68KjAsr2767S2YcQA?domain=distfiles.alpinelinux.org>

I hope that helps!
