Any solution of that kind would be better than the current arrangement.

I worked out that if I added the filename by hand to the URL I could actually
carry out the download, despite my inability to use a browser that supports
Javascript. So, I managed to work around the problem, but it wasn't at all

Of course, as it's GPL code, it should be possible to set up a mirror
elsewhere and keep it up to date. All I was able to find were old mirrors,

Checking out the Subversion repository also solves the problem.

To be clear, if they want to make HTTP the only protocol over which to
download the releases, I don't have any objection, but linking to Javascript
pages instead of serving the directory and files directly is a real problem
for some of us.
