This will not work. Either we use MirrorBrain or SourceForge. But both 
at the same time is not possible. At least when you want to use the 
automatism and not hard-coded download links.

Until last April I was working on the download webpages. But I haven't 
invented all the stuff, so I think I don't understand every little path 
of the logic.

I suggest to make use of the test area 
( to leave the well-working 
production area away from problems.

When we are sure the download is also working with SourceForge, then we 
can use it for the new releases.
