> Subject: [ZWeb] FYI: Readying the "Zope Download Center"
> Back in November we on zope-web discussed making Zope downloadable from
> SourceForge's global mirror system:
> Based on the agreed decision to pursue this, Sidnei and I said we'd do
> some work and come back with the results. Well, it looks good and we're
> ready to take the next step:
> (Don't mind the layout bugs, those will be fixed in the next step)
> We also revived the Freshmeat project page.
> To revisitthe proposal, this is to give *an extra* download location,
> not to eliminate others. Zope can still be downloaded from zope.org,
> shipped with RedHat, packaged for Debian and Fink, etc. Obviously, the
> more the better.
> However, this option gives us benefits we've never had:
> o Faster pipes
> o Global downloads
> o Download statistics (finally!)
> o Eliminate single point of failure
> ...as well as removing around half the monthly network traffic on zope.org.
> The next step is to get this woven into the /Products page, which could
> also use some sprucing up. We hope to get this done soon, in advance of
> the 2.6.1 release.
