The point was for you to say that _in the announcement email_.

It doesn't make much sense, in an email about "Pretest Windows Binaries", to
provide a link to something that is separate and different from "Pretest Windows
Binaries", without saying anything about what that link is for.

Sure, users can always google "GnuTLS", but they should not have to.

Please add a one-line description to the link that is provided.  Preferably,
_link_ that description to a page with more info (e.g. GNU page or Wikipedia
page for GnuTLS).
