+    <h2>Important notices</h2>
+    <p>
+      Each Apache Incubator "Podling-Name" is an effort undergoing incubation
+      at The Apache Software Foundation (ASF). Incubation is required of all
+      newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the
+      infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have
+      stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects.
+      While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the
+      completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project
+      has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.

+    <h2 id="verify">Verify downloaded artefacts</h2>
+    <p>
+      It is essential that you verify the integrity of the downloaded files
+      using the MD5 and PGP signatures. MD5 verification ensures the file was
+      not corrupted or tampered with. PGP verification ensures that the file
+      came from a certain person.
+    </p>
+    <p>
+      Each project will probably have its own instructions on its download page.
+      If not, then the following notes will help.
+    </p>
+    <h3 id="pgp">PGP signature</h3>
+    <p>
+      The PGP signatures can be verified using
+      <a href="http://www.pgpi.org/">PGP</a> or
+      <a href="http://www.gnupg.org/">GPG</a>. First download the project's
+      <code>KEYS</code> file as well as the
+      <code>*.asc</code> signature file for the particular artefact. It is
+      important that you get these files from the ultimate trusted source - the
+      main ASF distribution site, rather than from a mirror. Then verify the
+      signatures using ...
+    </p>
+    <pre>
+% pgpk -a KEYS
+% pgpv apache-podling-X.Y-incubating-src.tar.gz.asc
+
+<em>or</em>
+
+% pgp -ka KEYS
+% pgp apache-podling-X.Y-incubating-src.tar.gz.asc
+
+<em>or</em>
+
+% gpg --import KEYS
+% gpg --verify apache-podling-X.Y-incubating-src.tar.gz.asc
+</pre>
+
+    <h3 id="md5">MD5 checksum</h3>
+    <p>
+      To verify the MD5 checksum on the files, you need to use a program called
+      <code>md5</code> or <code>md5sum</code>, which is included
in many unix
+      distributions. It is also available as part of
+      <a href="http://www.gnu.org/software/textutils/textutils.html">GNU
+      Textutils</a>. Windows users can get binary md5 programs from
+      <a
+href="http://www.fourmilab.ch/md5/">here</a>,
+      <a
+href="http://www.pc-tools.net/win32/freeware/console/">here</a>, or
+      <a href="http://www.slavasoft.com/fsum/">here</a> or an openssl client
+      from
+      <a href="http://www.slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html">here</a>.
+    </p>
+    <pre>
+% md5sum apache-podling-X.Y-incubating-src.tar.gz
+... output should match the string in apache-podling-X.Y-incubating-src.tar.gz.md5
+</pre>
+    <p>
+      We strongly recommend that you verify your downloads with both PGP and MD5.
+    </p>
