Software distributions should not be kept on the project's website.
Instead, they should be moved to the appropriate central site. There are
three types of software distributions with three different locations:
Current, official releases that have been approved by the PMC and are
targetted at end-users should be placed on www.apache.org. This is the
main public release site and the site that is mirrored world-wide.
Releases that are not intended for general public consumption should
be placed on people.apache.org. This includes automated test builds
(svn.apache.org/builds/) and pre-releases aimed at the developer
community, but not at end users (svn.apache.org/dist/). Essentially,
any release that you do not consider ready for prime time should go
Older releases that you would no longer recommend to the general
public should be placed on archive.apache.org. This site automatically
contains all the content of www.apache.org/dist/, but nothing is ever
deleted. Therefore it should rarely be necessary to touch this site,
except during a reorganization. Once a release is no longer
recommended to the public, simply delete it from www.apache.org/dist/,
and it will remain on archive.apache.org/dist/.
