This guide does need to be updated badly.  Until it is, the link should be removed from the sidebar in the docs.fp.o website.  I can take care of the latter part; the Docs Project should take a look at this guide and slot into their task list.  I'd argue that it's even a bit more important than any general user guide, because this is one of the core tasks that all users need to understand how to complete.

There are additional ways of automatically applying patches now that PackageKit is on the street.

Good golly these guides are old.  Wasn't the SMG folded into another guide?

danielsmw will try to fold this information into the User Guide which will keep it updated.
Comment 5 eric@christensenplace.us 2009-06-30 11:28:10 EDT
This is being moved to the User Guide for further development.  The Software Management Guide will be moved to the wiki for update.
Comment 6 eric@christensenplace.us 2009-07-29 20:38:31 EDT
Changed from desktop-user-guide to user-guide to help reduce confusion.
Comment 7 Paul W. Frields 2010-03-07 17:37:41 EST
This has been folded into the user guide already AFAICT.
