Fwd: Returned post for announce@xxxxxxxxxx


Hi All,

My previous attempts to post to the apache announce was unsuccessful. So I
requested them to share the specific reason for rejection.
Below is the reply from the group,

 "The announcement contains direct links to the mirrors.
However these do not give access to the KEYS, sigs and hashes which are
needed for verification.
It is important that downloaders are reminded to verify downloads.
*Whilst the download page contains links to hashes and sigs it does not
contain the KEYS or verification instructions.*
It's also quite difficult to find the download links as is part of quite a
long page."

Based on the reply I will remove the link to -
https://www.apache.org/dyn/closer
<https://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi?path=/fineract/1.2.0/apache-fineract-1.2.0-binary.tar.gz>
. But it looks like we need to update our website to include other
mentioned points.

Kindly advise

Thank You,

*Shruthi M R*

The announcement contains direct links to the mirrors.
However these do not give access to the KEYS, sigs and hashes which are
needed for verification.

It is important that downloaders are reminded to verify downloads.

Whilst the download page contains links to hashes and sigs it does not
contain the KEYS or verification instructions.
It's also quite difficult to find the download links as is part of quite a
long page.
