Shawn Heisey commented on LUCENE-5631:
--------------------------------------

I asked on #asfinfra whether a general solution with the mirror CGI would be a good idea.

11:39 <@gmcdonald> I do not think download.cgi is the place to put an archives
                   link no

11:41 <@gmcdonald> elyograg: elsewhere on your website you should link to
                   downloads.cgi or the archives. The download.cgi picks a
                   mirror, archives do not live on mirrors, change your way of
                   thinking is my reply. If you insist on following up, talk to
                   the site-dev@ list instead of an INFRA ticket.

I will follow up with the site-dev list to see if they have any interest in a general solution.
 Regardless of what happens there, I do think we need to improve our own project pages.  When
I have a moment, I will pull the site down from svn and see if I can cook up a patch.

> When visiting the website to download Lucene or Solr, it is very difficult for people
to locate where to download previous versions.  The archive link does show up when you click
the download link, but the page where it lives is replaced in less than a second by the CGI
for picking a download mirror for the current release.  There's nothing there for previous
versions.
> At a minimum, we need a link to the download archive that's right below the main Download
link.  Something else I think we should do (which might actually be an INFRA issue, as this
problem exists for other projects too) would be to have the "closer.cgi" page include a link
to the archives.
