Some interesting analysis forwarded from infrastructure@apache.org...

We should create light-weight pages, too!

I went thru yesterday's log from daedalus and added up the bytes sent
per URL.
The top 20 culprits are attached.  It supports your thoughts about
mirroring the
distributions.

One surprise was seeing jakarta.apache.org/ (the doc root) show up. The
log
contains over 157,000 GETS for jakarta's / at around 33K bytes each when
we
actually serve it.

I wonder if moving just the builds/jakarata-*/release/ stuff to
www.apache.org/dist would be more managable?

xml has a couple of its own dist/ directories with popular files.
