OK, I think I agree. I'll save this message and work on it soon
if there's no dissent. Some notes for webmasters are also long
overdue and this should be part of those too.

What I have a problem with is you posting a rant about the website
to discuss when the main problem I could understand (the versions
on the front/news being different to the downloads) is one you made.
Please discuss the site in general on discuss, but specific bugs
will get fixed much faster if webmasters are emailed directly.

Where was it announced?

Do you know some of the links (Mirrors, for example) 404 at the moment?
