Description: ------------ A user in IRC had trouble finding the package download link on the download page: "I have some usage feedback about the Pear site. I tried to download something on this page: http://pear.php.net/package/PHP_Parser/download. I first clicked 0.2.1 on the left, then I clicked"Download" on the right and only then I clicked 0.2.1 on the right, which is the right link." Expected result: ---------------- Don't link version on left if you are on the page for that version. Make the download link more obvious, maybe use the full tgz filename in the link.

I'm kinda leaning towards wontfix - downloading is the wrong user action to start out with, and the 'more info' link *should* have gotten them back on the right path. That being said, if you feel like making a patch, I'll stick it on.

I'd go with unlinking the currently selected version on the left, but that's all I'd do.

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on pear.php.net by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
