Whilst that is definitely a sensible place to have it I have heard of 
people coming to python.org for this kind of information and not being 
able to find it. I'm not sure that the download page is where you would

Maybe on the "About" page too? Also what about as one of the options in 
the "DOCUMENTATION" sidebar?
