Whoops :>.

No reason - other than I started with it being sources with an idea that 
I would add binaries and then it completely slipped my mind.  When I 
started I was basing it on the Jakarta pages, which use a separate page 
for binary and source packages - thus the wording above.  Not sure we 
have to do that though.

I will look at putting a new section for binaries and fixing the wording.

Hmm.  What about a generic link pointing to the old distribution 
directory for non-mirrored sub-projects?  Bit of a carrot - if people 
move things over, I'll make sure the new files get explicit listing on 
the new page :>.
