kudos to you! Everyone hates working on documentation :D

no. The summation of

         Paper based on the avalon-components releases

         Paper based on avalon adopting the mirroring guidelines

         Official how-to-mirror

         Brief how-to-verify-httpd releases

         Description of why verify

         Not much here except for pointers to other mirroring pages

         Stefan's useful how-to-mirror

         Wiki of how-to-verify and why verify

         How to do "releases" while in incubation

         Main entry point into the ASF dev-docus

         Main entry point into the HTTPD dev-docus

and similar fragments scattered throughout the ASF should be gathered, 
verified, generalized, spell-checked, formatted into an anakia document, 
then submitted as a patch (sent to infrastructure@apache.org) for the 
www.apache.org/dev site.

use JIRA, kill the old one.

that'd be an option, but I suggest that maintaining our own "news" 
channel is more work than we can do (long-term), so its better to just 
participate in the big newsletter.

Keep up the good stuff! I know what an unthankful job website management 
is, and I really really appreciate other people doing the work ;)

more action items:

- disable forrestbot for avalon completely (dunno if its already done)

- figure out what version of maven is capable of generating our site and 
all subsites, then tell everyone (I've heard lots of things about 
various bugs)

- expand http://avalon.apache.org/components/ (like with your own stuff ;)
