          Looks OK, given that you didn't want to switch to conda.

          Added trivial points on the PR.

          I think Kian-Tat Lim's comment on the PR is the most telling: as usual, he's right. However, my feeling would be that merging your changes is a decent short term fix, and means we can step back and think more carefully about who really has the responsibility for maintaining this sort of web presence. For that reason, I'm happy for you to go ahead and merge this – but I'd leave the door open for Kian-Tat Lim to veto if he's unhappy.

          Do the changes on the PR sound reasonable? Also, feel free to punt the review to someone else.

          By the way, this issue may be part of documentation (ie, be Jonathan Sick/SQuaRE's problem) or we might regard the website as a different kettle of fish. I don't know what the right answer is; perhaps Frossie Economou or Jacek Becla care.
