Hi,

I've missed the update site mulitple times. Why?
I searched for "update site" or such. I know that an update site is a http
link.
I couldn't find one!

http://www.eclipse.org/mylyn/downloads/

The only thing you can click on are those zips for older versions.
I've even grepped the html code. The only place where "update site" occurs
is the title of the anchor tags (again of the old versions).

So it came to my mind that Mylyn had some build failures for about a week.

How to fix it?

Replace this
=============== bad start ======================
3.2 Weekly Builds

[...]

download.eclipse.org/tools/mylyn/update/weekly/e3.4 (Eclipse 3.5 and 3.4)
[...]
============= bad end =========

by something like


========== better =============
3.2 Weekly Builds (both .zip and update site)

[..]

_http://download.eclipse.org/tools/mylyn/update/weekly/e3.4_ [..]
or maybe even
_update site_ [..] (everyone knows how to get the href attribute)
======== better end ===========

What changed?
a) I prefixed the text by "http://"
b) I told the user what he should expect
(the search engine will have a chance to see this as well)
c) I made a true link. If you've used one update site you
know that you've hit one

Maybe it's only me. Don't know. I just want
to let you know that I've had some trouble here..

Sincerly
Marc Weber
