I'd suggest restoring the original <>*
repositories so they don't automatically redirect to the Apache podling git repositories.

To be clear, the ShardingSphere PPMC did not release anything. The group of people who managed
the project before it became the ShardingSphere PPMC did the release.

The unfortunate thing is that the ShardingSphere PPMC then made the release available on the
PPMC-managed site. This is the wrong thing that needs to be fixed. Removing the 3.x releases
from the Apache site is part of the fix. Restoring the github project that existed prior to
the creation of the podling is the other part.

I hope we can agree that there are two separate projects. One of them will be obsolete and
will disappear once Apache ShardingSphere graduates. The old ShardingSphere will no longer
have rights to the name.
