Hi,

I've implemented the proposed version

enterprise
http://enterprise.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/Download

manager
http://manager.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/Download

watch
http://watch.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/Download

xeclipse
http://xeclipse.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/Download

xoffice
http://xoffice.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/Download

Please vote on this versions.

This variant deprecates xwiki:Main.Download and will need also a change in
Panels.Download that will relate to the local Main.Download instead of the
global xwiki: link.

The feedback form is activated so we will receive the messages, but there is
only one general form and the messages are redirected just to one email
address. Some developer needs to fix this in order for the companies
checkbox to work.

Thanks,
Caty
