 > Change the link from "Edit" to the old "Admin" link - we don't edit
 (yet) so it will confuse people.


 > Remove the link to "View the capabilities these users have" - they don't
 need to care,

 I disagree, I think they do need to care, and should be aware of what
 extra capabilities they've given people indirectly. It should totally be
 linking to a handbook page though, and probably be listed at the bottom of
 the list.
 I don't care enough though, if/when that page gets added, we can add the

 > We're missing the links section with this: SVN repo.. etc..
 That's buried at the bottom of `Contributors & Developers`

 > Also these: https://wordpress.org/plugins/jetpack/developers/
 > Though that might be better off on a front-facing page for non-admins,
 as it lets people download older versions for debugging.

 I have no inclination to re-add those myself, it's extra fluff that
 doesn't matter to 99% of people.
 I respect that reviewers probably fit into the 1% though, and there
 probably needs to be something like that at least for reviewers.

 If we want to offer downloads of previous versions, it should probably be
 connected to the download button in some way.
