That is somewhat surprising, yes. One alternative approach that might 
help (if adding a new "Downloads" tab is too much), is to add a 
"Downloads" section (with links to the real downloads page) high up on 
the main page (somewhere around "News" and "Derby Project Charter"). 
Those headings are among the firsts things I notice when I go to 
http://db.apache.org/derby/. Just a thought.
