The reasons is very simple. We want to minimize the url's count you need to keep in favorites to search for project related information. And want to minimize count of resources to be updated after release because confuses and inconveniences appears if some info was forgotten and become outdated.
We've done our best in order to create really useful and convenient Project Site. And also improved our Wiki Project Page to make any specific project related info to be available easily.
(ss) The "best" might be better if at least one link is provided :-)
