Description

The new Tor animation, at the end, says "www.torproject.org/download". If you type that into a browser, you end up at https://www.torproject.org/download/download, which is a non-favored download page. It would be better to arrive at https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html.

I don't know how to express redirects in the webwml repo or I'd include a patch.

Is that rule this one from the .htaccess file?

RewriteRule ^download/$ /download/download [R=301,L]

(I am being thrown off by the / at the end.)

Unfortunately, I think that will make the current download.html inaccessible.

I am attaching a patch that does the following:

  • The current 'download-easy' page becomes 'download' and becomes the default download landing page (as I believe it should be)
  • The current 'download' page becomes 'download-all' and is accessible from the 'All Downloads' link on the default download page (formerly download-easy). This plays into #14686 by becoming a good place to consolidate. I think it would be best to scrap the accordion js stuff and and go back to a flat clean table based layout with jump links on this page but I'll save that for the other ticket.
  • A permanent redirect is added to .htaccess so that all existing 'download-easy' urls in the wild will redirect to 'download'
  • Updates all relevant links to point to the new locations
