Putting "LibreOffice download" as title and h1 would help.

The redirection from
should be an HTTP response 301 Moved Permanently.

For the Drupal site I suggest keeping
as URL for download to avoid the same situation again. Ideally, all
URLs should be inherited from the current site.

Dear website team,

today I played a bit with some search engines and typed "LibreOffice
Download". For example, Google still returns the (soon to be outdated)
TDF website [1] instead of the one that will be "officially" available
within the next few days. Consequently, our users might miss all the
thrilling language/system preselection stuff ...

I don't have any experience with web results tweaking, but may it be
helpful to remove the "old" LibreOffice Info/Download page [2] and -
instead - use a redirect to the new page?

Three additional things that might be required - as far as I know:
     * "Download LibreOffice" --> "Visit LibreOffice" (or so)
     * Redirect the current
       ""; to the new
       LibreOffice page (to ensure that any links out there will
       further work)
     * Clean up some remaining links ("TDF is proud to be the home of
       LibreOffice ..."

What do you think? At the moment, this might be rather relaxed, but for
the upcoming LibO release, users might please our users to find the
correct download location :-)
