The packages in oldpackages are not maintained any more.
see: https://lists.openwrt.org/pipermail/openwrt-devel/2014-June/025810.html

You can take over maintainership of that package and send a pull request
to our github repo with the new version of the package, then it will be
removed from oldpackages:
