Bug#720133: [installation-guide] uses old release numbering scheme (7.1 is not 7.0)

Package: installation-guide
Version: 20130503
Severity: minor

In wheezy, the release numbering scheme was changed to match the post-sarge practice of putting the major version number in the first version number. The first point release of wheezy is therefore Debian 7.1, not Debian 7.0.1. Consequently, while Debian 6.0 refers to all squeeze versions, Debian 7.0 does not refer to all wheezy versions. The installation guide needs an update to reflect that. http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/amd64/index.html.en currently contains:
This document contains installation instructions for the Debian GNU/Linux 7.0 system (codename “wheezy”), for the 64-bit PC (“amd64”) architecture. It also contains pointers to more information and information on how to make the most of your new Debian system.

Besides the Abstract, the first section and section 1.6 are affected. I spotted these with a very quick scan, but I'm afraid there will be more.

By the way, http://www.debian.org/releases/wheezy/releasenotes has the same issue.
