sorry, It should be f16-beta-tc1, sorry for the typo, I have tested, it worked well.

typos notwithstanding, where is it?

Is there supposed to be a fix in the preupgrade for fc-15 (the one that is to be used to upgrade to fc-16) ?   If so, where is it?    As I said, it doesn't seem to be in koji  <http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=6045>

what I am talking about is upgrade from f15 to f16. Now when you upgrade from f15 to f16, this bug disappears.
But there are still to bugs:
1. the default mirrorlist in  http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/releases.txt is not correct, you should point it to the right one
2. another bug 735016
