Bug Description

1. Run installer
2. On 'Help & Support' slide, click the link 'Official Documentation online' and it will go to the 18.04 docs - https://docs.xubuntu.org/1804/ - rather than the latest 19.04 as there are no docs for 19.10 yet

There is nothing at the url in which the patch adds. Is there a typo in it or does the documentation not exist yet?

It doesn't exist yet, but will be there before the release. I mentioned about this url on IRC today in the xubuntu-devel channel before sending in this patch and bluesabre stated that "Unit193 might be able to set that up, otherwise pleia2 or knome".

changing the string would break the translations, you probably to sed change the msgid/msgstr in the po files to workaround

@seb128, how would the patch break translations? The only thing changing is a url.

Sean Davis (bluesabre) wrote :

@seb128, actually, I understand how it would if the url is included in translations. We'll need to create a broader patch to adjust the po files as well.

Sean Davis (bluesabre) wrote :

@seb128, attached is a patch expanded to include the translations.

Hello again! We've updated that URL to include our latest docs. Please accept our most recent patch (comment #15). Thanks!

Hi Sean!

It looks like this made it here a little too late for 20.04. If you would like to get this SRU'ed, please update the bug template accordingly.

Would you still like a patch changing this to 20.04 uploaded to Groovy? (Will there be a 20.10 page up soon that you would like to change it to instead?)
