Is there a way to revert manually to earlier versions of a package?
I know this is a bit weird but I need previous versions of some packages for some reason.

Depends how you installed it: for example, which TeX distribution do you use? –  Joseph Wright Apr 22 '12 at 19:57

If you are using TeXLive, tlmgr can backup installed versions (it already does this automagically) and restore previously installed; see its documentation. I don't know if MikTeX offers something similar. And the mercurial repository of CTAN offers older versions - but you'll have to install them manually.

You can find historical versions of (some) packages on Automated Mercurial Repositories of CTAN. However, you'll have to manually install these in your local /texmf folder.
