The directory pub/fedora/web on the master servers contains the home
page content, exactly so it can be distributed to the mirrors.  The
release notes size isn't so great that mirrors would object to those
being added under this same directory.

The normal URL for the release notes is at
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/release-notes/ and subdirs thereunder.
If the release notes content is posted to the mirrors to show up under
pub/fedora/web, I expect we could make docs.fp.o/release-notes do a
redirect to http://download.fp.o/pub/fedora/web/release-notes.
There's a propogation delay though; you can edit content on docs.fp.o
and it's live nearly immediately; once you're doing http redirects to
mirrors, you need ~24 hours to make sure the updated content has
gotten to the mirrors.  Right now there are 13 mirror servers carrying
this content globally.
