(I tried to send this yesterday, but it didn't appear to go through.
Apologies if this is a duplicate)

Since we're now maintaining the 2.0 branch for an extended time,
alongside 2.1, and we presumably will be maintaining 2.0, 2.1, and 2.2
simultaneously in the future, don't we need to modify the wordpress.org
downloads page to reflect the availability of these branches?

I thought of this when I was getting ready to update the WordPress entry
for freshmeat.net. I want set up these different version tracks as
branches on FreshMeat, but to do that, I need to be able to point at
download URLs and such for the specific versions. We *have* those URLs,
but they just aren't documented well on the primary web site. The
FreshMeat moderators might reject the new branch entry if they can't
easily verify some of the info.

While we're updating the download info, do we want to point at the
Debian packages, FreeBSD port, etc.?

Oh, and did anybody ever send a release notification to the
announcements mailing list?
