Description David Juran 2007-11-09 09:40:28 UTC
Provide details here.  Do not change the blocking bug.


I've noticed that in
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/release-notes/f8/en_US/sn-Xorg.html it's written
that i810 is the default driver. If I'm not mistaken, "intel" is the default
driver for all intel graphics cards nowadays...

The specific Intel driver information appears to have been removed from the current release notes beat. Do we want to add it back in?

Comment 2 Karsten Wade 2008-08-28 15:36:16 UTC
The notes for F8 look likes they were inherited from F7 notes without any of the X developers updating the content.  Removing the content from F9 is most likely the right approach; we don't normally call out all of the drivers, etc., the case of i180 and intel was because of the switch in drivers, with one being experimental for that specific release.

So, how about:

* We do not add the notes back in to the current notes
* We update the reference in F8 by removing the section as it was done for F9

Jason -- let me know if you are interested in doing any of that work; it's fairly easy; I'm happy to do whatever you do not want to do. :)

Created attachment 315762 [details]
xml patch

This should fix the content as previously discussed in xml and then the notes can be rebuilt/pushed. :)
