The actions required from this, as I see them are:
1. eliminate the forwarding of the URL to snapshots. This may require
altering the filename of the archive based on earlier discussions about
the source forge forwarding logic. Perhaps include snapshot and date in
the archive name?
2. produce a well-known download location for the hash, so that our
release archives are able to be validated by scripts.
I'd help do these if I had the access to do so. Are these actions
correct, and are they assigned?
