    The lack of the latest files on the linuxaudio site isn't something I can 
fix.  My understanding is that the situation used to be that lilypond.org used 
to run a cron job that scp'ed the binaries to linuxaudio.  However, this 
stopped working when a) Han-Wen changed the hosting of lilypond.org or b) there 
was a problem with linuxaudio and it had to be rebuilt. 

  I assume it was the latter. Somewhere I read a blog post about their server 
being hacked and completely rebuilt in a new infrastructure. Obviously our 
uploads don't work anymore since then.

    I assume that there is not the correct certificate on the new lilypond.org 

    The cron job was set up by Jan, and the login I use has no access to it.

    The simplest solution might be to change to simply pointing all downloads 
to the lilypond.org server.  I think we didn't do this in the past to lower the 
load on the server, but the new infrastructure might not see that as a problem.

  Well, at least currently it's the problem that the links point to a 404 error 
  a) Who knows whether it is acceptable to permanently host the binaries on 
lilypond.org (somehow I doubt that is an option)?
  b) Who knows how much work it will be to get the hosting on linuxaudio.org to 
be working again?
  If either a) is the way to go or b) is suspect of taking more time (than say, 
a few days) we should temporarily update the links on the download page.


    Copied to Jan and Han-Wen for their thoughts.

        Available from http://lilypond.org/downloads/binaries/ currently.

      Any information on how long this situation will last? I think we should 
consider updating the website, even if it's temporary.
