Subject [site] New Jakarta download pages
Date Tue, 22 Feb 2005 05:13:45 GMT

(Bcc'd to all Jakarta dev lists)

Partly an announcement that the Jakarta download pages have been changed 
somewhat. Rather than one huge page, it's a whole set of pages. So when 
time comes to do your next release, you modify 
site/downloads/downloads.xml and run ant.

Source, binary and nightly-builds are all part of the same page.

More importantly, a suggestion that projects should no longer link to the 
top download page, but instead link to their particular download page.

So POI would link to:

http://jakarta.apache.org/site/downloads/downloads_poi.cgi

Commons would link to:

http://jakarta.apache.org/site/downloads/downloads_commons.html

Commons IO would link to:

http://jakarta.apache.org/site/downloads/downloads_commons-io.cgi

and so on.

The new pages should be exact matches to the previous binindex and 
sourceindex pages. One requested improvement is for filenames to be 
specified rather than '1.0.zip'. Hopefully we can make that change 
globally by figuring out the xslt to get the filename from a url.

Another improvement is to add the cvs.apache.org/snapshot/velocity, and 
any other live snapshots as Nightly Builds.

Apologies for the cross-list posting, wanted to make sure everybody got 
the memo about changing the download links if they want. :) Please direct 
replies back to the general list.
