OK

[3] is *not a mirror*

An example mirror site is [3a]. The corresponding binaries [4a] and source [5a]
pages don't include hashes.

There is a KEYS file at [6a] but [1] says to download KEYS from the ASF.

[3a] http://mirrors.ukfast.co.uk/sites/ftp.apache.org/xmlgraphics/commons/
[4a]
http://mirrors.ukfast.co.uk/sites/ftp.apache.org/xmlgraphics/commons/binaries

Note that [1] says

"The PGP signatures can be verified using PGP or GPG. First download the KEYS
as well as the asc signature file for the relevant distribution. Make sure you
get these files from the main distribution site, rather than from a mirror."

This is not at all easy to do with the current download page.

Have a look at how other TLPs do it.
