I'm sure that people like you, self-confessed "Windows jockeys" that is, find
the  environment .. conducive to your working.  a bit like Linux distributions,
some people find Ubuntu/Debian "floats their boat".

fwiw, the 'github.com/POV-Ray/povray/tags' page would benefit from showing
checksums (sha256?) for the archives, too.

sure.  (though regrettable from my perspective)  as long as no account is needed
to download the source archive.

the "not the only ones" argument reminds me of an old saying "people, eat more
shit, four billion flies can't be wrong".  fifteen or twenty years ago,
SourceForge was the place to be (seen) on, maybe github will do better, who
knows?
