You know, perhaps this is approaching this from the wrong direction.
Maybe the correct solution would be to change that welcome page to be
more explicit about what it is and why it's there so the question
doesn't arise in the first place. It *is* better than it used to be but
it could be better. If we just move the "The CentOS Project has nothing
to do with this website or its content, it just provides the software
that makes the website run." up to immediately after the "This server
powered by CentOS" under the Testing 123... heading.

Does the attached patch make it more clear more easily? It gets the
essential message into the top paragrpah which is the one that gets
read. Having it off the bottom of the page where it resides in the
current version means you're reliant on people advancing to the next page.
