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):

How reproducible:

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.

Comment 1 Sandra Moore 2002-03-15 23:13:09 EST
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. 

Best regards,
