A few lines further down the release notes, it says that one of the
ways of getting the .src.rpm is:

# up2date --get-source kernel


Yeah, I saw that. I figured it was a bug in the release notes left over
from FC3, since section 6.2.2.2 gives the correct naming description
for the sources in FC4.

I also think it's a bug in the release notes, but for a different reason.

up2date --get-source should retrieve the SRPM for the named package. Since the named package is "kernel" and not "kernel-source", it's nothing to do with the naming convention change since FC2 (i.e. no more kernel-source package). The problem now is, I think, that up2date uses the same repos as yum, and yum repos don't contain any SRPMs. So up2date --get-source isn't going to work with yum repos.
