Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Graduating Apache Eagle

This download page does not fully comply with the ASF distribution policy,
which says there should also be a link to the signature and description of
how to check it:

Is a direct link from front page to an ( implicitly "endorsed"?)
third-party site GitHub (and no link to ASF downloads) OK according to
policy? I would have included a traditional Download link - it's OK for
that page to include both the source code and Maven coordinates, but I
don't think we should encourage downstream to "download from GitHub" at
this stage as it conflates what is a PMC-voted ASF release or not.
