+   The purpose here is to point users to the latest stable release while still
+   publishing announcements for development releases.

+   There are several kinds of modifications that could be done there via the
+   ``Administration`` box in the lower right area of the page:
+
+   * Edit the project: This is where most of the URLs proposed in the
+     ``Links`` box are edited. This should rarely change except for the URLs
+     related to the latest stable release.
+
+   * New announcement: When doing a release (beta, candidates, final), put the
+     summary of the release (you can't embed URLs there, the moderation staff
+     remove them). Users can still access the releases notes via the ``Release
+     Notes`` URL in the ``Links`` box in the upper right area of the page.
+
+   * Set direct download: When releasing a new stable release, this should
+     point to the corresponding launchpad page:

    be done for final releases but not for beta releases or Release Candidates.
