Description

7 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; PPC Mac OS X 10.5; rv:16.0) Gecko/20120904 Firefox/16.0 SeaMonkey/2.13
Build ID: 20120904141344

Steps to reproduce:

Looking for Legacy PPC builds.


Actual results:

It's not obvious where to find the Legacy PPC builds


Expected results:

A suggestion on what might be done to make the availability of Legacy PPC builds more obvious to a site visitor.



Seriously, who reads to the bottom of this page anyway hoping to find something for their PPC machine ? Will anyone ever realize there are PPC releases available ? You need to bring them to the top somehow.

My spacing and indentation aren't quite right but you get the idea of what I'm looking for.





Currently http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/ starts out as such

To me in 2015 the current visibility seems sufficient:

on <http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/>           ; under Heading
  Old and Unofficial Releases                             ; I find
    see Latest Releases for Legacy Platforms
    <http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/legacy>    ; that page shows

      SeaMonkey for PPC                                   ; (Heading)
      <http://code.google.com/p/seamonkey-ppc/>           ; With this link below

And DuckDuckgo finds that "seamonkey-ppc" project as first hit.

I doubt that more can be expected.
      

@Jens: What do you think? WFM? WONTFIX?

In between there might me much less interest for PPC Legacy builds, so I think current solution is appropriate.
