We are talking past each other. I'm asking for the meta-yocto-bsp and
machine conf file to be around .. somewhere .. I don't want people
to have to scrounge them up and revive them from old releases, or
revert commits to make them available.

So this is outside of linux-yocto, I'd like a single layer than when
added, gives access to the BSPs "as they were" in the 3.10 tree, and
I'd like that layer to not be on people's local drives only.
