Hi Jaroslav.

When you currently want to download a complete new release from 
ftp.alsa-project.org you have to scrounge around all the directories 
manually. Would it be easy to automate to have a /pub/alsa/<version>/ 
directory containing links to all the relevant packages? Ie:

/pub/alsa/1.0.13/alsa-driver-1.0.13.tar.bz2 ->

and same:

alsa-lib-1.0.13.tar.bz2      -> ../../lib/alsa-lib-1.13.tar.bz2
alsa-plugins-1.0.13.tar.bz2  -> ../../plugins/alsa-plugins-1.13.tar.bz2
alsa-utils-1.0.13.tar.bz2    -> ../../utils/alsa-utils-1.13.tar.bz2
alsa-tools-1.0.13.tar.bz2    -> ../../tools/alsa-tools-1.13.tar.bz2
alsa-firmware-1.0.13.tar.bz2 -> .../firmware/alsa-firmware-1.13.tar.bz2
alsa-oss-lib-1.0.12.tar.bz2  -> ../../oss-lib/alsa-oss-lib-1.12.tar.bz2

with probably links /pub/alsa/stable -> 1.0.13 and /pub/alsa/devel -> 
1.14rc3 and stuff like that.

(by the way, as far as I'm concerned, the /pub/alsa locations wouldn't 
need to be links but could just as well be the main locations but if you 
want to keep the current layout in place...)

Would make it a bit nicer to download a new release...
