Re: Install bug/message

Note, we only show the detected errors when installing using the ISOs
generated by the test builds.  It is not done for the final ISOs, and
thus only our developers and alpha and beta testers will see it.

Well, it would be useful if it triggered someone to have yet another
look at the manual, as they are reminded about it when they do a test
installation.  I am not sure how to measure if that actually happened.
I know for myself that every time I see the message I get an urge to
help with the manual text, but it would be useful to learn if it
happens to others too.

What would be the advantage of sending contributors there instead
directly to the wiki?  I agree that we should have a better page to
send those wanting to work on FIXMEs, though.

But it is a very good idea to ask for donations, both from testers,
but particularly from those using the final images.  Where should we
show the link to
<URL: http://www.linuxiskolen.no/slxdebianlabs/donations.html >?
Perhaps more prominently on the first web page shown and on
<URL: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/ >?
