[cross-project-issues-dev] Problems with Callisto download directions

http://www.eclipse.org 's main page now says "Callisto M5 Build available for download posted 13Â03Â2006" (http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/S-3.2M5-200602171115/index.php)

Problem 1: This is not Callisto, it's just 3.2M5. There's nothing on that target page about Callisto.

Problem 2: It's 3.2M5 and not even 3.2M5a. Nobody should be freshly installing M5 (without the a).


The main page also has an image for the "callisto bug hunt" which links to http://www.eclipse.org/projects/callisto-files/callisto-bug-contest.php

This has a link "How to install Callisto" (http://www.eclipse.org/projects/callisto.php#Installing)

The first step says "Download and install the appropriate Platform 3.2 SDK" (http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/)

Problem 3: It should say Platform Runtime Binary instead of SDK. (actually I think it should be something even smaller but that's a different post)

Problem 4: This is just the generic download page. You have to hunt for the right version, and there are 4 versions near the top that say "3.2". And it would be easy to miss "3.2" from the instructions and click on "Latest Release" instead which gets you 3.1.2.

Problem 5: Platform Runtime Binary should be first on that page (or even better, a special page created with *only* the minimum runtimes).
