Re: Suggestion for a new Download page

Quoting Jonas Pasche <mail jonaspasche de>:

More updates done (to docs and faq) on the web site.

Added an faq for this based on your text below.

Used that as the basis of the faq.

Someone else will need to work on that page, or it will have to wait.

Added, though all it does is provide links which are already available in
the menu bar at the left.

I think those two should be combined.  If someone writes up a good
"what are these yum and apt things" I'll put it in the "Getting started..."

Beats me.  No idea what would go here.

Already there.
