If you've submitted projects to freshmeat in the past, you'll remember that submission was a multi-step process, and that once your listing was on freshmeat, there were several different pages for updating your data -- here to update your URLs, over there to add a branch, over here to change your project's name.
For freshmeat 3, we've simplified the process and combined many of the project maintenance features in a single location. We decided to drop the branches features, so each project has just one set of URLs now. When you submit a new project, you're given a single page on which you can enter all of its important information (optional data like screenshots and dependencies are still handled separately). When you come back to edit your information, you're given the same single page so you can tell at a glance what needs to be changed.
Since each project has just one set of URLs, the form for submitting a new release includes your project's links. When you change them there, they're changed for your project. If nothing's changed in your project's basic information, you can update your links while you complete the "add release" form, and won't need to do anything else.
We hope this simplification and consolidation of features will make using freshmeat a quicker and less confusing experience for you. We'll look forward to seeing what you've been up to!
