The first thing is: I prefer the git interfaces from gitlab and github.

## The interface used on savannah (cgit?) isn't clear to me:
* Why have all tags a tar.gz file but the 68.4.1-gnu1 has no tag?
* Where do I find the git clone url? OK, I found it on
* Why do I have to enter gnuzilla.git at and not just gnuzilla or
  gnuzilla.* or gnuzilla*? Why aren't there hints for searching?

## About content
* Why is the head and master at 60.7.0?
* Why is there a test branch with 38.3.0

Neither the interface is comfortable to, nor the content seems to be
well maintained. Sorry for the cruel words, I mean it in a friendly way.
