Comment(by bdubbs@…):

 As the description of this ticket says, the title of the page says "5.6.
 Linux-2.6.34 API Headers"

 Do we need to say "Use the Glibc-2.11.1 tarball" when building glibc?

 If these users you are talking about don't infer that we are saying to use
 the linux tarball, what package do they think should be used?

 If users can't figure this out, then they don't meet the requirements of
 vi. Prerequisites. "It is also expected that you have a reasonable
 knowledge of using and installing Linux software."

 I suppose we should add that we expect a reasonable level of understanding
 of the English language, logic, and an ability to follow instructions.

 I do not agree with this proposal.
