Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-5631) Improve access to archived versions of Lucene and Solr
Date Mon, 28 Apr 2014 17:46:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-5631?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13983280#comment-13983280

Steve Rowe commented on LUCENE-5631:
------------------------------------

The project has taken several steps in the opposite direction, intentionally making it *harder*
to access releases (and docs) for older versions, to encourage people to choose the most recent
version.

> When visiting the website to download Lucene or Solr, it is very difficult for people
to locate where to download previous versions.  The archive link does show up when you click
the download link, but the page where it lives is replaced in less than a second by the CGI
for picking a download mirror for the current release.  There's nothing there for previous
versions.
> At a minimum, we need a link to the download archive that's right below the main Download
link.  Something else I think we should do (which might actually be an INFRA issue, as this
problem exists for other projects too) would be to have the "closer.cgi" page include a link
to the archives.
