I guess I may not fully understand the problem you are trying to
solve. As a project, we universally direct people to
subversion.apache.org/download/ as the place to get our source
packages. Rarely do we expect people to go directly to w.a.o/dist/,
and if they do, we should expect that they at least have some idea
what they are doing.

Having some kind of documentation to inform the wayward souls who
stray to w.a.o/dist/ rather than s.a.o/download/ would be nice, but it
shouldn't duplicate the content of s.a.o/download/. I think we'd all
rather maintain one set of docs and just redirect people there (with
the added bonus that it get more folks to use the mirror network).

That should be fine.
