Yes, nasty bug. The http://download.osgeo.org/grass/ was an interim solution,
now, since http://grass.osgeo.org is on that server, too, I can again upload
to the master site (I have no access on "osgeo1" on which it was hosted
before).

yes and yes.
Can we do some trick to about duplication of files?

That's manual copying.
cronjobs are used for
- prog manual
- source snapshots
- Linux binary snapshots (which also generates user manual)

Yes, as soon we have a clear idea how to do it.

Markus

PS: Release announcements are all fixed to the former and working URLs
on the master site.

Frank suggested softlinks, but for archival reasons I would lean to
full copies. Disk space is cheap, and if in years time we move
grass.osgeo.org to another server which is not shared with
download.osgeo.org (or dl.osgeo.o moves away from us) I fear the
softlinks will get broken and not fixed, or at least be a pain to redo
for old releases.


thanks,
Hamish

For now I have copied grass62 and grass63 released to download.osgeo.org.
I heard that the machine gets a new disk soon, currently it's almost full.

The grass54 directory contains a pointer to the grass.osgeo.org directory where
stuff is available.

Ok thanks,

I notice the grass62/source/snapshot/ contains old versions, and
grass63/source/snapshot/ has a message directing the user to the pwd.
Remove snapshot/ from download.osgeo.org site?

Yes. Now there is only the pointer where to grab it.
