Thanks for setting up that page!

Direct links to /dist should not be published however, downloads need
to go via the Apache mirroring system to avoid overburdening our
servers.

A quick way to do that is to replace a link like

https://www.apache.org/dist/incubator/openwhisk/apache-openwhisk-0.9.0-incubating/openwhisk-0.9.0-incubating-sources.tar.gz

with

http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi?action=download&filename=incubator/openwhisk/apache-openwhisk-0.9.0-incubating/openwhisk-0.9.0-incubating-sources.tar.gz

Using the relative path of the file under /dist

If desired, a nicer download page with menus to select mirrors can be
setup as per http://www.apache.org/dev/release-download-pages.html
which points to the httpd download page as an example.
