The link you mention is the same file from the archive, since it is the
repository browser. The file is the manual page you can view using

    $ man flashrom

if you have flashrom installed. What pages refer to that link?

After you have compiled and installed flashrom [1] you can run it with
for example `flashrom -V`.
