Just noticed that the download page still points to 2.0.7 as the latest version.

However,

mod_perl-2.0-current.tar.gz

contains a copy of 2.0.8 so clearly 2.0.8 is the current release.

It's also quite unusual to have a browsable copy of the source on the
ASF mirrors.
This doubles the amount of space taken, and is not scalable.

It would be better to provide a link to the SVN tag.


Also the download page should have links to the KEYS file, and to the
hashes and sigs for each downloadable item.
Have a look at the httpd download pages for examples of how it can be presented.
