We have active links on the TLP for e.g., OODT and for e.g., Tika that point users to our
Incubator releases that are still active Incubator links. I realize that
keeps a copy, but following your logic, why would any TLP maintain its own dist area? It could
just point to the archives? 

We are not deleting any archives.

Keeping the dist area tidy with only current releases
means that this huge ASF-wide content is mirrored efficiently.

Also, we don't mirror archive.a.o via that dist system. 

I just had a look at Tika download page. It does as i suggested
earlier: They link to
for old releases
and to
for the older incubator releases.

on the Incubator dist page -- that's not just a requirement for active Incubator projects,
it should be true even when they graduate.
