Well, perhaps it is to you. However, it is a reasonable assumption that an
important part of a website like the store would be available on the main
navigation and as 'donate' is prominent on the home page of many open source
projects it is reasonable that visitors to the site should not have to spend
time looking for it. I did not even realise that there was a donate option
until it were mentioned here - something I would have known if it were on
the home page.
