I don't know if that is really within the scope of this document.  We
could very easily write entire pages on some of the points (and indeed
we have) and trying to cram it all on this one page would result in a
massive document that goes far beyond what we really want to present
here.  On some of the points that require more elaboration, we can
redirect the users to more information, or write sub-pages of the
FedoraMyths page to hold the more in-depth information.  Please keep in
mind that many people will only be interested in one or two of the
points, and many novice users will be looking at this document.
