Hi Thérèse, bill-auger,

Thanks a lot for the patch, Thérèse!  I went ahead and applied it, with
some minor changes/comments below.

You mean adding a line like the following to the .symlinks of the
gnuzilla web repo

,----[ .symlinks ]
| https://ftpmirror.gnu.org/gnuzilla/60.7.0/ gnuzilla-latest

and replacing the link for your newly added "Latest release" button with
something like href="gnuzilla-latest", and then bumping the .symlinks
entry in each new release?

Also, regarding the button, I changed the CSS selector from ".button" to
"#content .button" to avoid it messing with the FSF line at the top.

On the one hand I like the narrower lines, making it easier to follow
the text from one line to the next, but I can't help but feel the new
large margins are a bit distracting :-/.  What are your thoughts?  Do we
have examples of other project pages using .reduced-width for all of
their page?  Can we make all of

I'm thinking of going the other way, pulling the logo up on the same
line as the title, something like <https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/>,
and making it a bit smaller maybe.  I'll experiment with that later
tonight and see how it turns out.

Thanks, applied both of these suggestions.
