i understand very well what all of complaining was about and from what
i see, it is mostly from users who post to this list regularly.

it was *not* from new users wanting to download an iso.

that depends on their browser. with firefox, you right click on a
*hot link* and select 'bookmark this link'. which is what i did a
few versions back when torrent page _was_ a hot link.

because they do not know how to make bookmarks.

it is not 'the Fedora site', it is a new page written too hastily and
probably by a developer who's ass was worn out helping to get fedora 13
out. from looks of post and problems, they should have waited a little
longer. but that is what fedora is all about. new development and a whole
hell of a lot of testing, then releasing form more extensive testing.


i did not *jump into fire* like a lot of posters did in logging onto
http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora, but i did just now have a look at
page and not in bottom right of page, "Other ways to get Fedora", which
may be 'patch' that was mentioned in thread.

it links to http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora-all, which looks very
much like page that was available for fedora 12, except that now it is
all related to fedora 13.

all in all, i still content that if posters had
 http://torrent.fedoraproject.org/
in their bookmarks, posters would have known where to get torrents, unless
they where new users.

in summation, author of new 'http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora'
should have edited 'get-fedora' for fedora 12 and insured that
'http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora-all' was edited for fedora 13.

all of which could have been done with with a global 'replace all' edit
of '12' to '13'.
