the source/binary distributions that are linked from the jakarta-site2 
pages use the apache mirroring system.

scott sanders copied some releases from the commons over to the mirror 
system a while ago. the new releases that i've done have used the mirrors 
(rather than the old commons release directory) but i've held off changing 
the release document since i wanted to see what other people think.

mirrored releases require a bit more work since they've got to be signed 
and have checksums. it's up to you whether you want to make net available 
through the mirrors but i think that it'd be a good idea (since it's 
likely to be a popular download :)

if you don't want the release mirrored, then go ahead and update the 
websites (commons and jakarta-site2) and then send your announcements. (if 
you need someone with daedelus karma to update the sites once you've check 
in your changes, just ask.

if you do want the release mirrored, then either i can set up the 
directory structure you need then sign and move the jars in the commons 
release directory into the mirrored directory or i give you detailed 
instructions about how to do it. either way's cool with me - just let me
