 Replying to [comment:8 thomas]:
 > Is this just for Ant or is this more a general guideline to have the
 backup link to Anduin? There are several packages where the second (ftp)
 link is empty.

 Anduin is typically only used if the maintainer's site
 doesn't have the version of the package the book calls
 for. It is the last recourse backup if all else fails.

 So, try to use the maintainer's site URL if you can.
 That's all I'm trying to say.

 If the second (FTP) link is empty that is fine and good
 as long as the HTTP link works and is reliable. But
 for Ant, the only download URL is Anduin, and this is
 what we want to avoid if we can.
