Currently all of the download links in our documentation are for ipv4. For machines and networks that are strictly ipv6, these simply do not work.
This pull request updates all the download links, with both an ipv4 and ipv6 link.

  • Use ipv6 link for hidden links, add FAQ question

download.fedoraproject.org is a round robin redirect thing. I think this link should be dl.fedoraproject.org.

  • download.fedoraproject.org to dl.fedoraproject.org
2 months ago

This question strikes me a bit strange. Most people with IPv6 addresses are dual stack and can use the primary links. We may confuse them into thinking that they have to use a different server if they are IPv6-capable (not IPv6-only). How about rephrasing it to be more specific, like "Can an IPv6-only host connect to main download server?" Also, none of the other questions are prefixed with "Q:", so we should remove that part.

  • Cleanup wording

You were correct about both things (master->main and the question).
Both have been fixed.

Like the other link, this should be dl.fedoraproject.org. Also can we make it https?

I tried to fix this myself, but it appears pagure doesn't have the same feature GitHub does where it allows people with write access to the destination branch to be able to write to the source branch (even on forks) of pull requests. It's probably also worth squashing this into a single commit.

  • https and correct download links

I have changed all instances of http:// to https:// - on the two pages I've been working on.
I believe I have changed all the download links to the correct ones.
I have verified (and fixed) all the links that I have touched.
