      Description

      Can we change the url of velocity link on http://velocity.apache.org/engine/devel/getting-started.html page?

      This url will ultimately redirect the user to http://bluedogfan.com/wp-signup.php?new=mirrors page which is useless

      Steps to reproduce this bug:
      1. Go to http://velocity.apache.org/engine/devel/getting-started.html
      2. Under downloading velocity section, click on Velocity link
      3. http://velocity.apache.org/download.cgi#engine is displayed
      4. Click on velocity-1.6.2.zip under Binaries and sources section
      5. http://bluedogfan.com/wp-signup.php?new=mirrors page is displayed with the message Registration has been disabled.

      To fix this bug i have changed http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/velocity/engine/trunk/xdocs/docs/getting-started.xml code.

      Under section dowloading velocity i have changed:
      <a href="http://velocity.apache.org/download.cgi#engine">Velocity</a>

      to

      <a href="http://www.apache.org/dist/velocity/engine">Velocity</a>

      http://www.apache.org/dist/velocity/engine URL works. Please let me know your comments on this. Can i checkout and commit this patch?

      Please find attached the modified getting-started.xml code. Also the steps to reproduce the issue has been attached in Gettting Started.doc
