Various snapshots of the repository exist here:

You could presumably reconstruct a repository from one of those
tarballs, or perhaps more likely a combination of a base version and
layering the update tarballs on top.

If you have an OI151a machine already, though, you can just create
your own AI ISO!  There's an XML file you'll need here:

  pkg install install/distribution-constructor

and then grab the AI ISO XML file from:


and create an ISO:

  distro_const ai_x86_image_JMC_151a.xml

which will, by default, be in:


I've used the ISO I created with this process to install at least one
machine so far, so it appears to work well enough.
