[PD] oops (did a bad thing in puredata.info)

Hi, I understand and take responsibility, I know I made mistake and screwed
up, and I apologize, I'm sorry. I hope we can move on and restore it,

So, I just wanna help and dedicate some of my effort to contribute to <
puredata.info>. All I wanted was something like this <
http://puredata.info/downloads/purr-data>; which was added a couple of day
ago. Notice there are no featured/experimental releases or anything on it,
just links to the release.

Nowadays, this seems like a more reasonable practice to point to a github
rather than using puredata.info to host the releases. I can add yet another
example of a relevant new Pd project outside <puredata.info> : <

I don't mean to be destructive, on the contrary, if you feel 'alpha55'
should be made available, even though it is not one of the 3 available
cyclone versions in deken, I can work on uploading it too... but it has
been discussed and agreed that we should not use cyclone to release new
versions as today this has been outgrown by other means, aka deken...

So, how to create a new plain and empty cyclone page if restoring the old
one ends up to be too troublesome? Mostly because the choice now is to not
use it as it was being used...
