The Release Notes do not get updated unless very faulty or critical
information needs to be modified or included. (I have first hand
knowledge with a submitted bug report which impacted F7. F7 Release
Notes were frozen in RC2 and nothing short of a critical problem would
get it modified.) A bug report may cause this information to be
included for F8. It does not help current users.

Regardless of where this information is placed, the intent of my
original posting was to find out what official source/document
provided the Live CD requirements. I, personally have no need for this
information, but what I have gotten so far, is a bureaucratic
run-around. It would be nice to have an authenticated source
disseminate this data.
