I am trying to close this bug BUT incredibly enough this has been a 
problem since 2010!!!

For some reason, there is a reference to a link in the Readme file -> 
[http://www.libreoffice.org/welcome/readme.html] that points to an 
non-existing page on our site.

Like it was mentioned in 2010, SilverStripe does not create .html pages 
per se, but creates links to pages. So, Silverstripe cannot create pages 
with an extension of ".html". The link reference in the "readme" needs 
to be changed. Is there a way to change the link mentioned in the " 
readme" file to point to this page that I have created for it here 

ALSO, what is the real purpose of the "readme" file on our website? I 
can only see it as a direct copy of the "readme" file in the download 
package. It contains information on how to install the packages, but I 
don't see a need to put this on our site as our "Get Help->Installation" 
section has all of the information a user needs for installation. The 
readme file also has other information that is easily found on our website.

Do we really need a copy of the readme on the site?

IMO, the line in the readme file that references 
[http://www.libreoffice.org/welcome/readme.html] SHOULD BE ERASED. There 
is no real purpose in doubling it on our website. IT WOULD ALSO NEED TO 
apparently is referenced in these files as well!

FINALLY, I strongly suggest to have that sentence (below) deleted from 
ALL readme files (the EN and native language readme's --> it is the 
first sentence at the top of the "readme" file).:

"For latest updates to this readme file, see 

IMO it would be important to push this for v.4.0.
