Sebb commented on QPID-8116:
----------------------------

Weird that the file does not show up. Obviously it has been synched otherwise 
the URL would 404.
I assume the invisibility must be due to its name. README files can be treated 
differently in the HTTPD config.

If the file is intended for downloaders to read, maybe try renaming it?

Note: I think it's OK to refer to dist.a.o in JIRA as it is primarily aimed at 
developers; however it should not be used in announce emails or download pages 
etc. which are intended for the general public. Sorry, should have made the 
distinction clearer.

> To reduce the load on the ASF mirrors, projects are required to delete old 
> releases [1]
> Please can you remove all non-current releases?
> From the download page, it looks like all but the latest release of each 
> product can be deleted.
> It's unfair to expect the 3rd party mirrors to carry old releases.
> Note that older releases can still be linked from the download page, but such 
> links should use the archive server at:
> https://archive.apache.org/dist/incubator/mxnet/
> Please also make a note to remove the previous release when a new one is 
> announced.
> Thanks!
