Add introductory paragraph to Download page?: new section
==Dependencies and optional packages==
Please can someone who has edit permissions on this page add a note about additional packages. These are mentioned in the readme file, and it would be helpful if this wiki page said this and where to find the readme (/usr/share/doc/gramps). There are some error messages that can crop up about missing packages, and it is not always obvious what should be done to fix these. One example is an error message that "Gramps detected an incomplete GTK installation" but with no info on how to fix this. The readme says to install language-pack-gnome-xx which fixes that error message. Thanks. --[[User:Peterhewett|Peterhewett]] ([[User talk:Peterhewett|talk]]) 13:03, 4 May 2016 (MST)
 
== Add introductory paragraph to Download page? ==
 
What do you think of adding a plain language paragraph (above the top-most green Note) to the [[Download|Download page]] which explains about version/platform differences and is a reminder of Version Template updating?
 
 
As of {{CURRENTDAYNAME}}, {{CURRENTDAY}} {{CURRENTMONTHNAMEGEN}} {{CURRENTYEAR}}, the [[Download|most current Gramps release]] is the {{TEMPLATE:version}} version. <br /> Initial release is for Linux OS and new installers for target platforms are updated by volunteers. So, updated release lags will correspond to interest levels. The released versions on the various platforms are: Version {{template:version}} for [[Download#Linux|Linux]], {{template:Version Linux Live CD}} on the Version Linux Live CD, {{template:Version Mac}} on [[Download#Mac_OS_X|Mac OS X]], {{template:Version MacPort}} for the [https://portableapps.com/about/what_is_a_portable_app Portable App] for Mac, {{template:Version windows AIO32}} for [https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/15056/windows-32-64-bit-faq generic 32-bit] [[Download#MS_Windows|Windows]], {{template:Version windows AIO64}} for more powerful [https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13443/windows-which-version-am-i-running 64-bit] [[Download#MS_Windows|Windows]], and {{template:Version windows portable}} for the [https://portableapps.com/about/what_is_a_portable_app Portable App] for Windows. For a history of Gramps release versions, see [[Previous_releases_of_Gramps|Previous releases of Gramps]].
 
'''''(just wrote an example for the [[:Category:Templates|Category:Templates]] Portal page and thought it could be re-used.'''''
