Putting a "placeholder" in the release-notes module is the right way to
go.  The link already exists in the splash page; no need to change it.
The web site could be updated as needed, since we would obviously be
revisiting it anyway to post the test3/final versions.  I just don't
want to change the splash page, or other READMEs that we wouldn't
otherwise be touching, since every time we add more indirect update
points, it's yet another thing that can be wrong at release time.  We
basically have three points for Release Notes ingress:

1. /usr/share/doc/HTML/RELEASE-NOTES-*.html  (provided by release-notes/
in CVS)
2. http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/  (indirectly provided by
3. http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/ReleaseNotes/  (canonical)

So we're looking at putting in filler in CVS that takes care of (1) and
(2), and a quick note on (3) which is easy to remove for a "real"
publication push.  Did I miss something?  Do we know all the entry
points people currently have for Release Notes?  If not, should we?
