Description of problem:
I have a machine with FC2 + latest updates and I tried to upgrade to
FC3test2 using yum.
To begin with I manually installed the yum-2.1.3-1 and
fedora-release-2.91-4 rpms and configured a fast mirror for fc3t2.
Running "yum --obsoletes update" fails after a long time with the

3. run yum --obsoletes update
Actual Results: Running the actual update transaction fails

from them but as they do not have fc3 packets yet the yum.conf during
the upgrade has only the [base] repository.
I'll attach the full yum -d 4 log to the bug later.

This is known and I think it's fixed in cvs.
There will be a new package hitting rawhide in a few days. If you
could test that it would be useful.
I can confirm that the yum-2.1.4-1 release fixed the bug.
I had not touched the system after the bug appeared and upgrading the
new yum cured the problem and the upgrade from fc2 to fc3test2 went
