Should it do that? Let's ask one question before this one: "When do YOU read the release notes?" 1) Anaconda-install time: no links, just blurb about online availability. (Idle curiosity.) 2) Before I decide to install: yes, yes, yes! (Engineering approach.) 3) Never: add link to "http://microsoft.com/" ;-) (Education ;-) 4) When something that worked before breaks: yes, yes, yes! (Harried/confident developer.) 5) Before I turn the system over to my clients: just a blurb. (SysAdmin role.) HTH -- I'm already an anomaly, I shall soon be an anachronism, and I have every intention of dying an abuse!
