Thanks for the suggestion, it is something that we have already spoken internally.
We do not have a public repository with old versions because these versions might have bugs, security incidents, etc. that have been corrected in later versions. We offer support for the latest versions as we ensure that they are updated and free of any known errors so far.
In the specific case of Gitlab, since a time ago, we are releasing it using Omnibus. If you want to use Gitlab you can launch a VM or use our Cloud Images, in case you want to use Linux installer you should install it via Omnibus.
Also, we can provide you with our older Linux installers (gitlab-6.3.0, gitlab-6.4.3, gitlab-8.16.1, gitlab-8.16.4).
