But there is: Quick Links/Windows installer. Plus there is "download
Python now" in the center of the page.

If you actually want it to be *massive*, I fail to see how you could
provide this in any other way but having a *massive* download button. If
such a button is desirable, I fail to see why it can't be added *now*,
i.e. why we would have to wait many months until the redesigned site
provides such a button.

Please ask him to try again; I added a link in the Core Development menu.

Can you please find out why the link on the left site called "Community"
was overlooked? I find that *very* puzzling.

Core Development/Patch Submission.

Is that also coworker's request? How would that have helped the coworker?

We are all volunteers, so no. If you want me to understand, then yes.

This list of specific changes already helps to understand (although I'm
still not sure which of these things that somebody - maybe you -
actually wanted to have for himself, and which of them you think people
might want to have, without knowing anybody specifically who said they
want them).

What I also don't understand why these trivial changes have to wait for
a revamp of the entire site.
