Where is _the_ HCL for Fedora-8?
If you know then surely it would be better to give the URL
rather than glibly telling people to "consult the HCL".

As far as I can see, the HCL you are advising people to consult
does not actually exist:
"This page does not exist yet".
The only reference I could find to "Fedora HCL"
said it had not been updated since 2005,
which would make it more or less useless, I imagine.
