Yes, I think that's the issue that started this thread.

What we need is someone who can do (or learn) the plone templates to  
make a better downloads page a reality.  Can someone take this on?

What I think we need on the new download page is a fusion of the old  
and the 'community/projects' page.  So at the top of the new downloads  
page would be a simple clear link to downloading Pd-extended, since  
its the most newbie friendly distro (that's the aim at least).
