I get "sorry that page doesn't exist", and I am logged in. I don't see it
under "All Projects" or "Community Projects" either.

More generally: It's extremely heartening to see a new Osgeo website on a
mainstream platform and looking current and relevant. As for Osgeo4W. It's
used by many thousands of people but maintained by less than a handful,
with herculean effort. I know this has been stated already in this thread,
but I wish to underline that fact!  *All hail Jurgen, Markus, and Martin *for
their sustained effort to keep Osgeo4w ticking these last few years.


*>>>insert vaguely formulated thoughts about how someone else (osgeo,
vienna, anonymous hero, ...), could provide some community building and
support resources to ensure health and continuity of the osgeo4w ecosystem.
Recognizing that the download infrastructure and website from Osgeo are
huge supports, but they're not enough for vitality. Our 3 heroes can't or
won't do this indefinitely. <<<*
