The URLs are correct, the versions are not.
- 3.0 development has just started and will last another 5 months.
- 2.4 is not really the successor of 2.3 but also includes a lot of changes 
that will go into 3.0. On the other hand it lacks some features that were 
present in 2.3. It was developed on special customer demand.

This means 2.3 is the latest stable general purpose release. Most people will 
want to go with it for now, even if the packages there are not fully up to 
date compared to some OpenPKG versions. I will update the 2.3 packages if I 
find time, for 2.4 on the other hand I am not sure if we do.

Kind regards,
