At work, I need to setup Java 1.3 and 1.4 for some legacy products that I will be working on. I've tried looking around for the PKGBUILDs but haven't found any.
What I've tried so far:
git clone https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/ arch_packages_git cd arch_packages_git git log jre/trunk/PKGBUILD
but the history doesn't go back far enough
svn checkout --depth=empty svn://svn.archlinux.org/packages
as mentioned here but it returns
svn: E000111: Unable to connect to a repository at URL 'svn://svn.archlinux.org/packages' svn: E000111: Can't connect to host 'svn.archlinux.org': Connection refused
Tried accessing http://cvs.archlinux.org/cgi-bin/viewcv … root=Extra as mentioned here with no luck
Has the svn repository moved? Is it still available? Is there anywhere else where I may obtain the old PKGBUILDs from?
If I can't find it, I guess I'll have to create one myself (probably base it off Java 5 ones in AUR) though I was hoping I could find an old PKGBUILD and save myself a bit of time.
Thanks in advance.

I'm unfamiliar with most of what you are asking about, but another alternative is to try the arch rollback machine
Unfortunately, that doesn't go back far enough either.
I finally managed to solve this.
Java 1.4 was relatively straightforward, since it was just a matter of downloading from Oracle and running the binary.
Java 1.3 took much longer to get going but with the help of this SO question and the Juniper VPN wiki page, which eventually led me to the lib-compat AUR package, I got it installed and running on my x86_64 system.
Here are the PKGBUILDs I used. I'll clean them up and post them on the AUR eventually in case anyone else needs them.
