  Precise release notes link points to ubuntu.com

Bug description:
  I imagine this is probably just a filler until release notes are
  finalized on the web but I wanted to make sure it was brought up.

  On the Welcome Screen (at least so far on the Edubuntu i386 DVD) for
  Alpha 2, the "Release Notes" link points to www.ubuntu.com rather than
  pointing to any page with release notes on thism.

  Additionally, shouldn't the release notes be on the ISO rather than on
  a web site.  Otherwise, how would someone installing *buntu without an
  internet connection ever have a chance to read any warnings in the
  release notes?

  So from my perspective, I would expect the release notes to be a file
  on the ISO that is opened by that link, rather than a blurb on the
  internet that I may not be able to access while installing.

  Or at the very least, the link needs to point to release notes when
  they're finalized, rather than the landing page at www.ubuntu.com.
