Comment 6 Martin Kolman 2015-08-28 09:44:14 EDT
The missing help in Initial setup is caused by the InitialSetupHub-common.xml file missing from the help content (only InitialSetupHub.xml file is present). Reassigning to anaconda-user-help so that a help content update that fixes this can be made.

Removing FailedQA as it was verified.
