Erg.  This is still bad if someone updates the site before the release
is approved and ends up copying up the modified download page.  But
ok.  Seems like site release should be handled separately from project

I can't explain this.  I guess my re-copying to the alpha8 tag did not
work.  There was a svn commit message on 1/30:

Author: mwomack

New Revision: 373711

URL: http://svn.apache.org/viewcvs?rev=373711&view=rev
Tagging for 1.3 alpha 8 build

     - copied from r373710, logging/log4j/trunk/

Is the "trunk" part for the tag messed up?

Just seems weird that the PMC might approve a release that the project rejects.

I tried to do #1 on 1/30 as part of the current build.

There is still the issue of the FileWatchdog failure in Gump brought
up by Scott on general.
