I wasn't thinking of the .symlinks file, but of adding a gnuzilla-latest
entry to the download directory. See GNU Parallel [0].

Thanks, Amin! I had forgotten about this. The footer also has buttons.

Yes, there are several. I think the first one I did was Gnuastro [1]
(the "reduced-width" class wasn't defined yet).
Maybe you could increase the width from 45 to 50 or 55em. For Gnuastro,
it is 48em.

Space is only a problem on narrow screens, where the text can't wrap
around the logo [2, 3].

(It would be better to center the logo on narrow screens.)

(I should remove the Introduction heading on this one.)

I like your idea, Bill. I may give it a try too.
