(I removed xen-announce from the CC as I figured that's not really the
place for this email [and it's probably moderated :)] )

I realise that releases are relatively rare, and this one is somewhat
special (with the version numbering change), so the process has some
rough edges.

I'd like to make the following observations.
 * Many of the logos on the Xensource site still include the "3.0"
   branding eg.
 * It's be nice if there was a download tarball link from:
   Sure there iare "Mercurial Repository" and "Source Browser" links but
   they're not really the same.  Is it really a requirement to use
   Mercurial to get the code?
 * The Mercurial Repository doesn't contain a tag "3.1.0" or
   "3.1.0-final", and the Mercurial Repository is still called
   3.1-testing.  This makes it a little non-obvious and also if you're
   pointing people at a download page for the latest and greatest it
   doesn't create a sense of confidence :)

It'd be nice to add this little bit of polish if possible.

Yours Tony
