Issue #1815 invalid

"get source" goes to actions, not links

For people who are not using Hg, it seems to be a little awkward to get download a tarball (or zip) of the source for a project.

In "get source", when clicked on, it does an action that downloads it for you. I got sick of this when using Sourceforge! The problem is that it makes it hard to use wget and friends to download source. Not every server has a web browser!

(As a side note... the .gz and bz2 are misleading in that that the downloaded items are really .tar.gz and .tar.bz2... correcting that could save some confusion).

Thanks for the great product!
