I can see the utility of some sort of header bit that says, essentially:

   This is a mirror of the Apache Subversion distribution collection. For
   more information about the files you see here, including:

     * how to download them from another mirror server which might be
       geographically nearer to you,
     * how to verify their integrity,
     * how to build the Apache Subversion software they contain, and
     * how to locate older versions thereof,

   please see http://subversion.apache.org/download/.

But the rest of what you have in your example is information duplicated from
the above URL (and makes for a pretty noisy page overall). All we need to
do is give folks the minimal amount of information required to help them
find the rest of the information they might seek.
