A download area added for non GNU projects

It was rather unfair that some Free Software projects hosted on
savannah.gnu.org did not have a download area. Originally Savannah was
only used for GNU projects and those were granted a space on
ftp.gnu.org. From now on, each project hosted on Savannah which is not
(yet ;-) part of the GNU project is granted a download area at:

http://freesoftware.fsf.org/download/projectname/

Each member of the project can upload files using ssh, or even
better, rsync over ssh. Here is the sample command I use for the uri
project:

cd my-laptop-tarbal-collection-directory
rsync --delete -av --rsh=ssh . freesoftware.fsf.org:/upload/uri

and then the files are immediately visibles at

http://freesoftware.fsf.org/download/uri/

The 'Project admin' page of each non-GNU project now contains
an explanation on how this works. To summarize shortly, here is what
you get:

For project A

Publicly visible download area at :
http://freesoftware.fsf.org/download/A/

Uploads to this area available to each project member at :
freesoftware.fsf.org:/upload/A/ using scp or rsync over ssh

Please send mail to savannah-hackers@gnu.org if you're in trouble.
You should first check that you are able to read/write the CVS repository,
as instructed in the CVS page for your Savannah project. Since CVS access
also uses ssh, once you get it working the upload will also work.
