In the Google-driven world, this is normal. Users search Google for the
FreeBSD.org page they want and Google does a pretty amazing job of
Interestingly, that freebsd.org gets a lot of bounces indicates the
information is organized, stable, reliably searchable, and labelled
well. These are very good things that are a lot less common than they
should be. It also means the site makes deep bookmarks reliable.
As such a user, I use Google to find, say, the errata pages or the
release cycle data and just go to those pages directly. I also have the
FTP site listing and the send-pr page bookmarked.
