+   * 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

+     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.

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