    There's a completely different reason for the unavailability of Chromium from 2004. (-: – JdeBP Jul 11 '18 at 10:43
  • what's the reason? and what about other packages? Is there any link from where i can download the source of all these for previous years? – Hazel Jul 11 '18 at 10:49

You can find old releases of Debian here. You won't find all the snapshots of packages, only the versions that were released.

You can find cd images at archive.org. https://archive.org/search.php?query=creator%3A%22Debian+Project%22
