I just made the following change to https://www.gnu.org/software/findutils/ :

The change will go live the next time the web repository is exported to the web site.  I'm not sure how often that happens, I'd expect minuted to hours.

I also applied the attached patch to the README file.  That won't be useful to anybody much until the next source release though (if people can see that content already it's because they already know how to use git to access the findutils code).

I assume I meant to mention the git repository URL in the downloads section as an alternative to tarball downloads. The description is very unclear, sorry. This link avoid searching for the git repository URL and makes the site more intuitive (otherwise it's only usable with a search engine).
