Description Jonathan Watt 2020-08-01 15:26:50 UTC
I was using whatcanidoforfedora.org to see what areas I could contribute to. I selected "Validate Releases" and it took me to the QA wiki:

  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA/Join#release-validation

That section says:

  For information on getting and installing pre-releases, see <this page>.

where "this page" links to:

  https://fedoraproject.org/get-prerelease

However, navigating to that page gives the message:

  This page is outdated!
  You will be redirected to:

  https://getfedora.org/

That general getfedora.org page doesn't seem to be applicable for directing potential testers on how to test pre-releases.

Maybe this could be fixed?

Jonathan, please report this to the QA team mailing list https://lists.fedoraproject.org/archives/list/test@lists.fedoraproject.org/ as they'll be the ones who can best update it. The websites team does not maintain the wiki.
