  • link to

Download Page

  • No more tabs — just Fedora Atomic Host

Initial Text

  • Lead containers copy and link to removed and put one level back, before the download page
  • Intro copy:
  Fedora Atomic is meant to represent the leading edge of Project
  Atomic development. These releases showcase that work. They've 
  passed various levels of automated testing, but have not been
  Please test before using new versions in production. If you do
  discover a problem, the Atomic tools make it easy to flip back to an
  earlier release — and if that happens, please also help us by [filing
  bugs] or [submitting fixes].
  Fedora Atomic Host images are updated roughly every two weeks, rather
  than on the main six-month Fedora cadence. Because development is
  moving quickly, only the latest major Fedora release is supported.
  See the [Atomic philosophy] for more." 
  Note that different Fedora Atomic Host media are subject to different
  levels of automatic testing. We are making continuous improvements
  to these tests; [click here] to learn about the current test status.

  • Need a box showing the specific version / date this was last updated
  • Need a link to older releases (in right sidebar?)

Downloads Section

  • Basic layout is fine
  • Cloud SIG should discuss ordering of qcow downloads vs. vagrant vs. ec2 launch
  • The sidebar ISO download should be moved to something like "Installer for Atomic on bare metal" (CLOUD WG NEEDS TO DECIDE ON SUPPORT LEVEL FOR THIS)
  • Actual EC2 IDs and specific hyperlinks need to be automatically provided rather than manually (NEEDS PROGRAMMING)

  • possible future home for Fedora Server cloud images, etc.

Containers page?

new page

  • like
  • Docker base image lives here
  • future links to layered images?
