Yes, it seems there is much confusion about this. After reading many of
the comments after my original post, and the lack of a significant
roadmap for this project, I fail to see the purpose of a Fedora
documentation project. "Tutorial style articles" instead of significant
documentation will drive away newcomers faster than anything. Let's
look at a couple other major distros, Debian and Mandrake. They have an
enormous amount of installation, configuration, and administration docs
for their releases. What's Fedora have? Much of RH9 documentation is
applicable, so should there be a notice on the documentation project
site for people to use those documents? I don't know, I thought I was
be myself here, but it looks like many other have the same concerns.

Is there any chance of getting a public explanation as to why Red Hat will not
allow the RHL 9 docs to be used as a starting point. Assuming s/Red Hat/fedora??
Yes, I know there is art work also but that could also be substituted also.
I mean if there had been a RHL 10 would not that have been the docs for it modulo
It is not like RHL 9 anything represents large quantities of long term income
for Red Hat. Especially given that April is only 4 months away.
