Downloads page

https://openmw.org/downloads/

Serious question: Why is the list of linux repositories above actual download links? The AUR is kind of noteworthy, but the "use your distribution's repository" entries should basically be a single entry at the bottom of the page.

Because things like the PPA for Ubuntu are not official, but are usually more up to date than the official releases provided by Ubuntu itself.

Sure, but references to many other repositories are there, too, above the windows/OSX downloads, which 'need' to view the page to find out how to get openmw. I would personally probably order things like this, to be clear where I'm coming from:

1) Source
2) Windows/OSX/generic *nix
3) AUR, PPA, buildbots
4) Check your distribution's package manager
