        Hi, can you check this example which is created a few hours ago if it fits the needs?

        Looks good to me.

        The License link is to the correct page, and it is placed just above the download link, which means it should be obvious to people wishing to use the software.

        The download page also has a clear link to the source archive, plus sig and hash.
        The links don't actually work, but I assume that is because 2.9.1 has yet to be released.
        If I change 2.9.1 to 2.9 then the links do work OK.

        The links work not cause as you mentioned cause 2.9.1 is not released yet. Just VOTE started. Thanks for the feedback.
