Perhaps this is something you could raise separately with the Fedora
Docs team.  I'm just getting back from some travel during which I
caught wind of some new documentation standards being produced by the
GNOME docs community to make documentation more task-based, with which
I agree whole-heartedly.  Also, our own Docs team is working on
providing an easy way for people to retrieve and install
language-specific documentation such as a user guide which would
integrate into the desktop menu system.  (I'm pretty sure that
integration is desktop environment-neutral.)  The confluence of those
two developments might provide some better docs at the desktop level.
