I also think it's a bug in the release notes, but for a different reason.
up2date --get-source should retrieve the SRPM for the named package.
Since the named package is "kernel" and not "kernel-source", it's
nothing to do with the naming convention change since FC2 (i.e. no more
kernel-source package). The problem now is, I think, that up2date uses
the same repos as yum, and yum repos don't contain any SRPMs. So up2date
--get-source isn't going to work with yum repos.
