Boy! that's subtle -- I literally looked at least 3-4 times and didn't notice.

It seems a bit odd that they are under "custom", and kind of as a side note:

"projects’ sites may also offer official binary packages (e.g. numpy,
scipy library)"

and "may" -- this is the official site, and we don't _know_ if
binaries are provided?

Anyway, a lot of effort goes into those, it'd be nice for it to be
more prominent.
