[Fwd: rpms/fedora-release-notes/F-11 fedora-release-notes.spec,1.36,1.37]



Spot,

Is this a kosher change?  A contributor brought it to Fedora Docs but
I can't tell to what extent anyone checked packaging guidelines.  No
bug was filed and there's no ML traffic about it.

Upshot is, using hardlink to save very significant space.  I only
found this draft, and no sign that it's approved or that the usage
below is explicitly forbidden, so I'm assuming it's peachy keen.
