Description of problem:
RPM is defined on page xi in the Getting Started Guide as a software package
file, but the definition doesn't say what the letters "RPM" stands for. This
is confusing for new Red Hat Linux users.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Read page xi of the Getting Started Manual
Actual Results: "An RPM is a software package file..." wording doesn't say
what "RPM" stands for.
Expected Results: "RPM stands for Red Hat Package Manager, and is a software
package file..." or similar wording.
Thank you reporting this missing definition. RPM will be properly defined in the
next version of the printed Getting Started Guide. The change to the content in
development has already been made.
Thanks, also, for your interest in Red Hat Linux.
