That's a good point.

The board decided a long time ago that @author tags were deprecated in
code; partly because they get out of date, but mainly because the ASF
is a community, and code is a co-operative effort.

Seems to me the "Brought to you" sentence has similar problems, and
should be removed.

[There are other ways to attribute contributions, e.g. on a page that
lists committers, in the Maven POM (if used) etc.]

Also I think (almost?) all other TLPs include the ASF feather which
links back to the main ASF page.

Yes and no - [2] is where RCs can be uploaded for voting; actual
releases are published from [2a], e.g. by moving them from [2].

There are files at [2a].
