## Description

Following the installation instructions from http://dm.lsst.org/ produces the following:

 $curl -O https://sw.lsstcorp.org/eupspkg/newinstall.sh  % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current  Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed 100 263 100 263 0 0 740 0 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:-- 747 $ bash newinstall.sh !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are following obsolete instructions! See https://pipelines.lsst.io/install/ for new instructions !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

That's a bit sad for the public face of the project.

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.

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

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.

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