Simon has a point and simply having well documented man pages is not 
enough and I myself have not been doing my due diligence wikifying stuff


"|CHANGES WITH 194: * If /etc/vconsole.conf is non-existent or empty we 
will no longer load any console font or key map at boot by default. 
Instead the kernel defaults will be left intact. This is definitely the 
right thing to do, as no configuration should mean no configuration, and 
hard-coding font names that are different on all archs is probably a bad 
idea. Also, the kernel default key map and font should be good enough 
for most cases anyway, and mostly identical to the userspace fonts/key 
maps we previously overloaded them with. If distributions want to 
continue to default to a non-kernel font or key map they should ship a 
default /etc/vconsole.conf with the appropriate contents."

|You probably want to do the same for /etc/sysconfig/i18n since it's now 
considered legacy and administrators and users in general should use
( using my use-case as an example )
"vconsole.keymap=is-latin1 vconsole.font=latarcyrheb-sun16"  on the 
kernel command line

Instead of the old SYSFONT and FONT which probably are being 
ignored/deprecated now.

or make the necessary changes to /etc/vconsole.conf as in

*cough* in perfect pony world we would be updating the 
installer,firstboot and bunch of other stuff that needs to be updated 
and tested at the same time *cough*
