Your very first suggestion would entail *really* major changes right now,
so this is the LEAST of my favorite!

OK, I don't understand this last bit.

Please again take a look at  to the current setup on SourceForge:

<DL url>/files/localized/<language-code>/3.4.0/<packages>

It would simplify our rollout if we could just stick with the current
structure on SourceForge. We will be using that as our primary DL mirror
for clients.

Marcus's alternate suggestion of :

<root-path>/files/3.4.0/...
<root-path>/files/3.4.1/...
<root-path>/files/3.5.0/...

seems like a good option to me as well, and you responded to this. But, the
least amount of change -- i.e. keeping the structure we have -- is really
the best at this point in terms of getting something done in a reasonable
time. Maybe we could discuss alternatives for *after* 3.4 in the future? We
are planning on a retool of the DL script after this, and incorporating
easier ways to deal with changes like this are high on the priority list.

Right now, we are planning on using SF for the majority of downloads --
typical clients -- and that structure -- good or bad -- is already in
place, and the test DL script is working based on this.

We will probably only use the Apache "dist" system for source.
So, in terms of how you setup things there I don't really care, but, of
course, we need information about that.


As silly as this probably seems to you, could we PLEASE just stick with the
current structure for now?
