Hi Michael,

We're currently considering whether to use apturl in installation
instructions on the Ubuntu documentation wiki at, and potentially also in the onboard
documentation provided with yelp (Ubuntu/Xubuntu) or khelpcenter

Can you confirm that there are no security related reasons for not
doing so? Are there any other disadvantages that you can see with
converting our instructions to use apturl.
