Description Rahul Sundaram 2006-02-24 16:51:45 EST
Actual results: Just a short list of bootup options Expected results: The definition of Fedora from http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraDict. Currently it says "Fedora is a set of projects, sponsored by Red Hat and guided by the Fedora Foundation. These projects are developed by a large community of people who strive to provide and maintain the very best in free, open source software and standards. Fedora Core, the central Fedora project, is an operating system and platform, based on Linux, that is always free for anyone to use, modify, and distribute, now and forever." Additional info: For users who come across Fedora, we havent been providing enough concise information on it. I would like to see this information provided within Fedora installer bootup and synced with the above wiki dictionary every release. This is the way it is planned to be done for Kadischi too. Refer to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Kadischi/Development/boot

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Kadischi/Development/boot The wikipage now complies to The definition of Fedora .

Way. Too. Late. We can consider something like this for FC6, but we're a week away from the absolute freeze.

(In reply to comment #2) > Way. Too. Late. > > We can consider something like this for FC6, but we're a week away from the > absolute freeze. We are in freeze yet. This is just adding a bunch of strings that cant possible introduce any regressions. I am not sure why you are hesistant.

It will regress from "anaconda was completely translated to $native_language". String freeze was on Jan 9.

One year later, already late again...
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2007-02-24 14:01:54 EST
We've also switched to the syslinux menu'ing system instead of just the standalong screens and this doesn't mesh at all there. The right place for something like this is a) where people _download_ the bits b) something provided along with the media and c) in the browser page where we have lots of other links. The installer really isn't appropriate for this at all.
