Well, you can accompany program with a written offer, valid for at
least three years, to provide sources upon request (clause 3b of
GPLv2). But this is widely regarded as burdensome because then you
need to keep actual sources around all the time while you distribute
plus three years after the last act of distribution. So you cannot
just upgrade and nuke all previous versions. Note that you need to
provide the exact version of the source code, you cannot provide a
newer version instead.
