        Chapter 3. Package Selection.

The documentation says, "Refer to the repodata/comps.xml file on the
first CD-ROM..."). On the fist CD-ROM for Fedora 10, there is no file
"repodata/comps.xml". Presumably the documentation refers to
"repodata/Fedora-10-comps.xml". The documentation should perhaps say

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/Kickstart
2. List directory repodata on the first CD-ROM
Actual Results:  
ls /NFS/NLU/CD1/repodata
Fedora-10-comps.xml     filelists.sqlite.bz2  other.xml.gz        repomd.xml
Fedora-10-comps.xml.gz  filelists.xml.gz      primary.sqlite.bz2
TRANS.TBL               other.sqlite.bz2      primary.xml.gz

Expected Results:  
I expected to see a file called comps.xml

The text in the Wiki seems to be the same as the text in

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2008-12-23 10:50:58 EST
These filenames changed sometime in the F10 cycle (on the HTTP/FTP site for rawhide it's even worse - they're named something like <sha1sum>-comps.xml) and the documentation never changed.  We generate the kickstart-docs.txt file from the wiki page so it's understandable the error would be in both places.

I've updated the wiki page.  Thanks for pointing this out.
