It's not intentional, but we chose to keep them out for a bit to try and
figure out how to keep the LEBs "special". But this time around, you can
see them live:
I did mention today to Alexander that I would like to see the "Download
for:" column cleaned up -- perhaps by moving the set to be split across
rows, or something else visually smart.

It's now linked, but I somehow feel that we should have these visible
from the main download page. Perhaps as a set of tabs inside Downloads
-- Downloads, Release Notes? Or Dave, do you think the way we have it
now is good enough for the moment?

That's a good point. I may have missed a reply to this -- what's the

That's sort of what I am saying with my comment above about cleaning up
the "Download for:" column. Instead of stapling them all together, how
Nano Natty 11.08 <download link>
TI Beagleboard <instructions>
ARM Versatile <instructions>
ST-Ericsson Snowball <instructions>
I realize the download link isn't exactly unique per-board and that we
have no way of fixing that in the near term. But at least the design
aboves is a step forward.
Finally, WTF is "Android Machine"? :-)
