This isn't actually the component for a bug like this, but I'm not sure where it should live — I'm looking for the appropriate person to take care of this for you, and I'll let you know as soon as I can.
Just letting you know that I have contacted the person who initially drafted the document to let them know of these issues. I'll let you know if I receive any updates.
Thanks again for your report.
Just a quick update to let you know that your request was forwarded to the correct people and department, but I haven't heard back from them about whether this was corrected yet. I've just sent a reminder today, so I'll let you know when I hear back.
I haven't heard back from the folks involved so I pinged them again today; I'll let you know when I hear anything. Thanks for your patience.
I'm pleased to report that the corrections you mentioned have just been applied to the document and an updated version is in our release queue. It should be online within a few days.
I'm going to set this bug to MODIFIED and verify that the corrected doc is available in a few days' time; thanks for your patience on this.
Looks like the new version is online here, Alan: http://www.redhat.com/en/files/resources/en-rhel-whats-new-in-rhel-712030417.pdf
Thanks for your patience on this. :)
Laura, thank you so very much for your dedicated persistence regarding this issue.
I think the corrected version will provide some value in terms of attracting new adopters of RHEL 7.
Typos never look good or instill additional confidence in regards to a person or an organization. Everyone makes mistakes, however, it's often important to make a good first impression, which the "What's New" documentation may be for many that are contemplating moving to RHEL 7.
RHEL 7 is an important milestone in Redhat's history, and Laura your efforts helped make it's presentation to the world be even more perfect. Thank you again for your work, and also making my first bug report a pleasant and educational experience! :)
