 <p>
-Mesa is distributed in several parts:
+The Mesa package is named MesaLib-x.y.z.{tar.bz2, tar.gz, zip} where x.y.z
+is the version.  There are three types of compressed archives.
 </p>
-<ul>
-<li><b>MesaLib-x.y.z</b> - the main Mesa library source code, drivers
-    and documentation.
-</li>
-<li><b>MesaDemos-x.y.z</b> - OpenGL demonstration and test programs.
-    Most of the programs require GLUT (either the
-    <a href="http://www.opengl.org/resources/libraries/glut"
-    target="_parent">original GLUT by Mark Kilgard</a> or
-    <a href="http://freeglut.sourceforge.net" target="_parent">freeglut</a> or
-    <a href="http://openglut.sourceforge.net" target="_parent">OpenGLUT</a>).
-</li>
-<li><b>MesaGLUT-x.y.z</b> - Mark Kilgard's GLUT, easily compiled and used
-    with Mesa.  Plus, other implementation of GLUT for DOS, OS/2, BeOS, etc.
-</li>
-</ul>
-
 <p>
-If you're not interested in running the demos, you'll only need the first
-package.
+There's also the MesaGLUT-x.y.z.{tar.bz2, tar.gz, zip} packages which
+contain Mark Kilgard's GLUT library.
+This is optional.
+Most Linux distributions include an implementation of GLUT (such as freeglut).
 </p>
-
 <p>
-If you're new to this and not sure what you're doing, grab all three packages.
+In the past, the Mesa demos collection was distributed as
+MesaDemos-x.y.z.{tar.bz2, tar.gz, zip}.
+Now, the
+<a href="ftp://ftp.freedesktop.org/pub/mesa/demos/" target="_parent">
+Mesa demos</a> are distributed separately.
 </p>

-The packages are available in .tar.gz, .tar.bz2 and .zip formats.
