Please be respectful. The tone of this message is disrespectful of the
time, effort, and skill that went into launching the new website. It's
unfortunate you do not appreciate or like the new site, but that does
not excuse you.

The source code has not moved, it is still available at
gitweb.torproject.org, as usual. If you're looking for the download
page, then there is an open bug for that, see [0].

Thank you for running these relay, we all appreciate it. The website,
however, is intended for a diverse audience, and most people are not
familiar with Tor. This new website is significantly better and more
welcoming for the general population, rather than a small percentage
of the population.

If you have suggestions for improving the new design, then please let us
