Description (last modified by phobos)

Bug 1: the first "source code" link on the download page is the tarball for TBB, not for Tor. Everybody was reporting that it's a 404 because they were all thinking they were clicking on "get the Tor tarball".

Bug 2: we have some useful videos and screenshots for how to install TBB at https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser but we don't link to them from the download page.

Bug 3: there are translated TBB's out there, but our download page doesn't give you any hint that they exist.

How about we solve all of these at once by changing the 'source code' column to something like "Details / other languages"? Downloading the scripts that build tbb is cool to provide but doesn't need to be on our main download page.

I think this should be 3 tickets, not one. However, continuing:

1) The section is for TBB, therefore the source link is for tbb. If people want the tor source code, it can be found under the expert packages.

2) Fixed with svn commit 23673.

3) The idea is that each translator links to their own language.

Otherwise, make it so.
