Yeah, perhaps that should be changed.

You didn't look hard enough or in the right places or something is
borked with your fedora rpm install.  :)

The fedora rpm appears to contain various docs from the mailman
tarball, some edited specifically for the fedora rpm install.

$ rpm -qpd mailman-2.1.2-2.i386.rpm 

(BTW, you can just run rpm -qd mailman on your fedora system to see
what documentation files were included.  I'm not at a fedora box so I
just grabbed the rpm to check that the docs were indeed included.)

If you want to see the original INSTALL file as shipped with mailman,
just grab the tarball.
