I'm afraid I didn't find the explanation above,
or the one at, very clear.
(I didn't realise that "click here" above meant
"click where it says 'click here'"!)

I would have said something like,
"To add freshrpms to your repositories,
download freshrpms-release.rpm (with a link)
and install with rpm -Uvh".

Not very important though.
My point really was that since one would presumably 
have to go to anyway to find out about it,
it didn't matter too much whether RedHat gave a pointer or not.
