Description Pavol Šimo 2008-04-11 14:51:33 UTC
Section 9 (Linux Kernel) contains information that kernel in Fedora 9 is based
on version 2.6.24. This is not true, it is based on 2.6.25rc, as stated in the
section 2.2.3 (Features)

Comment 1 Karsten Wade 2008-04-11 18:38:45 UTC
Thanks very much for the catch.  This was a bit harrowing, in that we can't even
be sure *which* rc kernel is going to be tagged f9-final, so the release notes
are always a best guess.  Still, 24 to 25 is worth updating, and leaving it as
'rc' without specifying which release candidate number gives us documenters a
safety margin.

This is fixed in the wiki already, so the web-based notes that come out after
the release would carry the correct version number.  However, since it is just a
version number change and *shouldn't* affect translation strings, I made the
change in the XML in rawhide.  (I'll easier push a new POT and PO file or just
update the PO files manually.)

Cheers and thanks again,

- Karsten

Actually, I'm going to reopen this bug and leave it open until I've made the
changes in the PO files.  After discussion on IRC, we decided to wait until
after translators have committed their files to do the update, to avoid
confusion, etc.

Comment 3 Karsten Wade 2008-04-16 01:03:21 UTC
Fixed for the release.
