This has nothing to do with the AOO downloads, it only affects apache-extras. As far as I'm
aware AOO downloads have been fine for a very long time - has that changed?

I support Andrea strongly here, AOO need a decision on this, apache_extras is an essential
part of our downloads, and not just "extras".

Personally I think the SF solution is what we as ASF need, unless Infra prefer to host it
on our own hardware, and do not have a problem with the download bandwidth.

Can I please politely ask the people, who says (or others say) they are working on this theme,
to come to a decision. This seems to be a matter where a single person could make the decision
but we still continue discussing.
