      Use https://downloads.apache.org/ instead of http://archive.apache.org/dist/ in our site

      Hello, Apache PMCs,
      In order to better provide our millions of users with downloads, the
      Apache Infrastructure Team has been restructuring the way downloads work
      for our main distribution channels in the past few weeks. For users,
      this will largely go unnoticed, and for projects likely the same, but we
      did want to reach out to projects and inform them of the changes we've
      As of March 2020, we are deprecating www.apache.org/dist/ in favor of
      https://downloads.apache.org/ for backup downloads as well as signature
      and checksum verification. The primary driver has been splitting up web
      site visits and downloads to gain better control and offer a better
      service for both downloads and web site visits.
      As stated, this does not impact end-users, and should have a minimal
      impact on projects, as our download selectors as well as visits to
      www.apache.org/dist/ have been adjusted to make use of
      downloads.apache.org instead. We do however ask that projects, in their
      own time-frame, change references on their own web sites from
      www.apache.org/dist/ to downloads.apache.org wherever such references
      may exist, to complete the switch in full. We will NOT be turning off
      www.apache.org/dist/ in the near future, but would greatly appreciate if
      projects could help us transition away from the old URLs in their
      documentation and on their download pages.
      The standard way of uploading releases[1] will STILL apply, however
      there may be a short delay (<= 15 minutes) between releasing and
      releases showing up on downloads.apache.org for technical reasons.
      If you have any questions about this change, please do not hesitate
      to reach out to us at users@infra.apache.org.
      With regards,
      Daniel on behalf of ASF Infrastructure.
