Looks like a broken link rsp. a directory with broken contents to me.

Joel is the person to actually answer this. The links your are referring
to are his domain.

rtems-4-8-branch has been branched in CVS, and is supposed to be
released as "stable tarballs" (rtems-4.8.x) in "not-too-distant
future" (When it's ready ;) )

So far, only experimental preview snapshots (rtems-4.7.99.x) tarballs
have yet been released.


I.e. ATM we have

rtems-4.7
  release series from rtems-4-7-branch in CVS.
  Still current official "stable" tarball release series.

rtems-4.8
  release series from rtems-4-8-branch in CVS.
  Soon to become "stable" release series and to replace rtems-4.7.
  No tarballs available yet. 
  Shape in CVS is supposed to be "nearly release-clean".

rtems-4.9
  release series from HEAD in CVS.
  unstable/experimental.
  Shape in CVS can vary by the day.
