Hello Thérèse,

Thank you. Yes, please.

Yes, please.

No, thanks. The style="margin-left: 10%" looks horrible. Also, let's
not start mixing capitalized and lowercased package names. 'gettext' is
lowercased for ages.

No, thanks. I want my users to download the software from a trusted
  1. If anyone who requests to be listed as a mirror at GNU can do so,
     then your preferred spying agency (e.g. the Iranian government or
     the NSA) can do so, and offer manipulated tarballs, possibly even
     with manipulated signatures.
  2. One of the mirrors is www.gutscheinrausch.de which is just an
     advertisement site. https://www.gutscheinrausch.de/gnu/gettext/
     does not contain gettext. (It did in the past. They apparently
     used GNU as a way to get known, and now that they are known they
     dumped the GNU mirror.)

> * fix the link to "How to get GNU software";

Yes, please.

> * trim down headings and Documentation;

The vertical spacing is intentional: The first two doc links belong
together. The third and fourth link document separate functionalities.

> * reduce line-width

No, thanks. If the user makes their browser window very wide, please
respect them freedom to do so. Forcing a maximum width goes against
the users' freedom.

>   and make the main heading stand out better.

Yes, please.
