Have I got the right link?

Hm. I just downloaded it with wget, with no problem.

And downloaded it again, with curl. And with PaleMoon, and elinks...

Well, one of us could add a note in the README about how to download
the file, but from my testing I can't find the problem.

What were you using that failed to download the file? If wget works
for you, the README could be updated to say "If you have trouble
downloading the source file, try using wget instead of a browser",
something like that.

If you're using a browser, see what happens if you disable JavaScript.
If that turns out to fix it, the README can mention JS.
