but I have not yet determined the differences in those collections
of aarch64 options. I was expecting to find them at arm.fedoraproject.org
based on my past
experiments with my Pi.

I'm pretty sure we don't want our documentation saying to get images
, at least not the final documentation.
The released images, and rawhide images, can be found at
I wrote that before verifying where those download links when to.
Disregard what I said
