Sorry, the correct document to be translated was
<>, which was mentioned later in
the thread.  It looks like what you've translated here is something else -
perhaps the "release notes" from beta or one of the alphas, which are a
different document altogether?

For the final release, the "release notes" document known upgrade/install
issues, so it's important that users consistently get this same
documentation when they click on the 'release notes' button, regardless of
language choice.  I'm happy to see other documentation contributed which
promotes Ubuntu (although I think it would be better for everyone if we
could agree on making the content match), but this NoteDiRilascio page
should not be linked as the 8.04 release notes in Italian.  Would it be
possible for you to translate those release notes as well?
