Hi Phil,

Note: I dropped the lubuntu-wiki-docs from this reply.
They can be added back later.

Sorry, but I don't understand.
It isn't clear to me that any change needs to be made by anybody.
In the end we aren't really doing anything different than was done
for 12.10, except that I wasn't even going to post the
13.04 version of the installation-guide. For 12.10, it was not
mentioned, and no link given, in the index.html page [4], however
the guide was actually there.

Now, all that being said, I am second guessing the decision.
Why? Well, do the following experiment:

Pretend to be absolutely new to linux and Ubunutu: O.K. so
I found the official documentation at [5] and want to
install desktop 12.10. How? I can not find any information
on how to install it.

The serverguide has a chapter on installation.
... Oh, and that chapter has a link to [6] for more detail
for the 13.04 version, which based on this thread, will
not exist. Darn.
