Removing the Fedora Release Notes from the releases.


Twice a year the Fedora Docs team runs around with their hair on fire trying to get the Release Notes bits put together, translated, and packaged.  The packaging requirement puts a lot of strain on the process, though, as thousands of lines of code go into the documentation, they are all new every release, and most of the time are only available at the last minute based on changes to code in other programs.

To reduce the strain on the process I’d like to propose that the Release Notes not be packaged (in RPM) and included in the releases and only be made available on the Fedora Docs website.

This proposal will be sent to the Fedora Docs and I encourage anyone with an opinion on this to reply to that message.
