Subject Re: Is this ok? (was [DO NOT USE OR PROPAGATE THE LINK ON THE ANNOUNCEMENT] Re: [ANN] Geronimo 1.0 milestone 5 (M5) released))

The main problem with this is that you can never get to the backup
mirrors (try clicking the bottom links).

I think you need to announce the
http://geronimo.apache.org/downloads.html page. That gives you the
most freedom to change links later.

Cheers,
Brett
