part 4: downloading and installing

Assuming you've figured out you need to get your downloads from jakarta.apache.org/builds/jakarta-avalon,
how easy is it to download and install?

It's obvious you need a 'release'.

Cornerstone: empty. That won't work.

Excalibur: select the latest one, click, unzip or untar. Select readme.txt. Redirects to online
docs. Those redirect to the api docs. Those redirect to the avalon docs. Problems with those
have already been pointed out. Could do with examples and more docs in general. Should mention
local docs.

Framework: select the latest one, click, unzip or untar. Select readme.txt. Redirects to online
docs.  Problems with those have already been pointed out. Could do with examples and more
docs in general. Should mention local docs.

Logkit: select the latest one, click, unzip or untar. Select readme.txt. Redirects to online
docs. Easy to read and use. Should mention local docs.

Phoenix: select the latest one, click, unzip or untar. Select readme.txt. Tells you to execute
run.bat/sh and checkout the docs dir. There's a getting started document. This mentioned a
hello world application. However, the described response from run.bat/sh is not reproduced.

Apps: not even listed.

Downloading is easy enough (cornerstone and apps perhaps don't have to be easy to download
yet). Logkit is easy to follow; it works as described. Phoenix is promising but the documentation
is out of date. Framework and Excalibur basically tell you to browse the javadocs to figure
out what to do with them.
