Why must one perform a full backup to add to an AG, when the wizard does a full backup?
When adding a database to an availability group, one must perform a full backup, before meeting the prerequisites.
However, once you do this, the wizard just performs another full backup anyway.
This seems redundant.
Why not just let the wizard do this, and not make it a requirement, as it's going to happen anyway?
If that doesn’t make it clear, you can add a comment on the DOC page directly.

I understand the fact that "a full backup is required to initiate the full-recovery log chain." However, you are performing another one immediately after in the wizard.
So it just duplicates the effort.
