Quoting Conor O'Neill <conor_lists at puddle.co.uk>:

> How about something like:

> GnuCash 2.2.5 can be downloaded from gnucash.org or sourceforge.net. It
> runs on most flavours of Linux, together with Mac and Microsoft Windows.
> It is available as source code.  For many Linux distributions, pre-built

> necessary additional libraries.

Except we don't provide pre-built binaries for Mac or Linux..  We
only provide pre-built binaries for Windows.  On Mac or Linux you need
to either build it yourself or wait for your distribution to provide
the pre-built package.

While I do agree that the wording of the announcement could be improved,
your suggested wording implies distribution that is not the case.
