- **should** have instructions on how to verify downloads. For this you can include a link to the <a href="https://www.apache.org/info/verification.html" target="_blank">Apache documentation on verification</a>.
- **must not** include a link to the top level `closer.lua` utility (e.g. `http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.lua/PROJECT`) as the KEYS, signatures, and any verification instructions for your release would be missing from the top-level script.

- Do **not** keep software distributions on your project's website. Move them to one of the two software distribution sites:

- **Current public releases** appear on `downloads.apache.org/`. Place current, official releases that the PMC has approved for end-users on the main public release site. Make all changes at <a href="https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/" target="_blank">`https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/`</a>.

- **Older releases** that you no longer recommend to the general public still appear on `archive.apache.org/dist/`. This site automatically contains all the content that has ever appeared on `downloads.apache.org/`. It is rarely necessary to touch this site, except during a reorganization. Once your project no longer recommends public use of a particular release, delete it from `downloads.apache.org/dist/` by removing it from <a href="https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/" target="_blank">https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/</a>, and remove the link to it from your download page. It will remain on the archive site.


To remove an old release from the release area, use a command of the form:

```svn del -m"Archiving release m.n" https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/<project>/etc/m.n```
This can be used for individual release directories or individual files (if multiple releases are present in a single directory).

Apache project download pages **must** use a closer.lua script. You'll find below a standard mechanism to let you easily create scripts that comply with the ASF distribution policy.
