Bug Description

readthedocs implemented a good practice of linking to exact page on GitHub. This make it really easy for users used to GH user experience to change changes for those docs. Would be nice to see at least source links for Ubuntu help pages.

Can you be more specific by pointing to a readthedocs page?

Sure. http://www.ethdocs.org/en/latest/ - try to spot it yourself,
and measure the time it takes for user to understand he has
the power. Compare it to user experience for Ubuntu help.

Beats me. I do not know what "UX" team is, and I am just a volunteer contributor anyhow.

Previously known as "ergonomics" in times when human-machine
interfaces were hardware. I advise you to ask this question about UX
on your Ubuntu mailing list and point to this bug, so that somebody
from UX team can tell you more.
