Inaccurate dates in release archive

Description

On https://wordpress.org/download/releases/, there's a table column for release dates.

The dates are mostly accurate, however 2.2.3 and older releases (in branch sections), as well as 2.3-RC1 and older (in "Beta & RC releases" section), all have "September 24, 2007" instead of the actual date.

For historical accuracy, they should have the correct dates as well. I can track them down if there is consensus on this.

Additionally, there were four releases in the 0.7x branch:

Only 0.71 is available in the release archive. Would be great to add 0.70, 0.711, and 0.72 as well.

Those dates come from the timestamps on the ZIP files in the /nfs/releases directory. Evidently those were moved at some point, presumably September 2007, and the dates on the ZIPs were lost.

If someone can track down the dates (they're probably available within the zips, if nowhere else) then systems should be able to alter the file times so it's correct.

Assuming the dates of the parent folder in the ZIP/Tars are correct (usually wordpress/ but sometimes wordpress-.../), this seems to get the right list of dates:

$ ls -la *.zip | grep 'Sep 24' | cut -c45- | xargs -I% sh -c 'echo "% \t\t `unzip -v % | grep '/$' | head -1 | cut -c 32-48`"'
$ ls -la *.tar.gz | grep 'Oct  3  2007' | cut -c45- | xargs -I% sh -c 'echo "% \t\t `tar -tvf % | grep '/$' | head -1 | cut -c32-48`"'
$ echo I know the above commands are pretty ugly

If anyone can confirm those dates, I'll see if Systems can update it.
These are stored with a SVN repo, so the dates might actually be tied to the commit timestamp instead, in which case we may just need to hard-code some of these dates.
