    Not strangeness, but a few suggestions for http://www.open-ils.org/cvs.php:

    1) Rename the page to /downloads.php, and alias /cvs.php to that (it was a weird name before, when the primary thing offered on cvs.php was actually tarballs & binaries with CVS coming last; now that you’re on Subversion, it’s even weirder!)

    2) Reorganize the page as follows:

    H1: Recommended version (1.1.x stream currently)
    H2: Binaries
    H3: Staff Client (get a 1.1.x Windows client out there to match the latest available tarball; point at dev.gapines.org for demo purposes)
    H3: Server (maybe trim down the warnings etc here – you’re covered by the same GPL license that you’re using for the Staff Client, and hey, if the Staff Client eats your children are you going to give the kids back? I thought not! Really, the threat posed by a VMWare image is probably far less than the Staff Client…)
    H2: Source
    H3: Tarball (only list the latest one; put the previous releases on a separate page; maybe add the dates for the release to give an idea of freshness?)
    H3: Subversion

    H1: Legacy version (1.0.x stream, because you don’t really want new users building with that)
    H2: Binaries
    H3: Staff Client (remove verbiage about “new version” of the client because it’s not all that new anymore!)
    H3: Server
    H2: Source
    H3: Tarball (only list the latest one; put the previous releases on a separate page; maybe add the dates for the release to give an idea of freshness?)
    H3: Subversion

    3) Add the commit mailing lists (YEAH!) to /listserv.php
