I created a resping of Fedora 8 CD only with newer packages and I still see this

Comment 4 Valent Turkovic 2008-03-17 09:34:48 UTC
I tested F9 Alpha and it also has no release notes?!?

I did another custrom respin of Fedora 8 with latest packages and it also has no
release notes... why?

Comment 5 Valent Turkovic 2008-03-17 09:51:58 UTC
To clarify:

F8 Lice CD Installed has a button "Release notes" that when you click you get a
window saying "There are no release notes"

F9 Alpha Live CD Installed has no Release notes button at all, why?

Release notes are a great source of information and I believe that they would be
valuable for lots of users.

That thread summarizes why release notes were dropped from Anaconda.  In short,
(1) because they're not useful at the time of installation, (2) they cause
significant pain for Anaconda developers, and (3) because they cause significant
problems for spins.

Comment 7 Paul W. Frields 2008-03-17 21:57:17 UTC
I should note for the record this bug filing is actually two separate bugs:
1. F8 doesn't show release notes when it has a button for them
2. F9 won't have release notes

We can't really do anything about 1. at this point because we don't tend to
update Anaconda after the fact for a release.  So that could have been WONTFIX,
but that seems like a rude way to close the bug.  I chose to respond to the 2.
case, which is NOTABUG, but simply acknowledging that a previous feature was
