Starting from the frontpage I click on the "Download" button and arrive here:https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html.en
And no obvious links to the source code.

So I look at the heading:"Home » Download"
and think surely "Download" just represents my current level in navigating 
the site.  Nope.  That's the button that you click to get the source code link 
to show up.  It's like walking through a dungeon wall in Zelda.

The bottom of the frontpage is fairly standard place for a link to source.  The
heading "Get Involved" even has an empty slot just waiting to be filled.

Right. Sorry.

Dear lord, when do you people sleep? :)

Anyway, putting that link somewhere at the bottom of the frontpage would 
be dandy.
