You cannot provide any links to sites which offer compiled versions of CraftBukkit or Spigot, because that violates the GPL license.
There is meaning behind it, because we actually use that "Edit Thread" to edit other thread properties, such as if it's pinned or an announcement, or if it's locked or deleted.

That section in particular was removed years ago, because it almost in 99% of cases descended into flame threads because people just wanted to use them to actually fight instead of having civilized discussions. Since this forum is meant to be family friendly and such discussions are not directly related to users here, we felt that it was best to simply not allow those discussions, especially when any thread like it rarely ends well.
The Mapping and Modding section allows for that kind of advertisement. Generally people use it for mods, but plugins are just fine there. We just do not have a dedicated session since Prefixs should allow for this type of searching (although it's not apparent, we'll try to improve that).

So yeah, Sach posted the article before Mojang announced.
"Unfortunately, the map is not yet currently available - the creator is ironing out bugs and the like"
