While examining the cryptome.wikileaks.org, I took a look at their version
of the donations page <https://cryptome.wikileaks.org/donations.htm> and
noticed that it seems to come from the June 2, 2014 release* which was
released via TOR and torrents over a year ago.

*Cryptome Archive USB.* The USB will contain the Cryptome archive of over

71,500 files for the period from June 1996 to 2 June 2014. Donation of $100
is requested. The USB will be shipped worldwide. Email a shipping address
to cryptome[at]earthlink.net.

It also references Cryptome's old kickstarter.

Does this mean that Wikileaks is hosting some of the files (older than June
2, 2014?) and using a redirect for newer files?

*The awstats which were included in that release don't show up in the
search through Wikileaks, but interestingly a few now deleted tweets from
Cryptome do. They may be storing some of the tweets.
