You can specify
already, and it works.  If some javascript creates that URL, cool.
However, as I've learned, paths do change, and code that generates
paths then needs to change too.

Tell you what.  For the F7 and F8 get-fedora page, let's just be
simple and put hardcoded links to the content, in a table format to
make it clear.  We can then look to do fancier things in the future.
I don't want to make a bunch of MM changes at this point in the F8
release if I can avoid it.
