Description of problem:
When running Rawhide I want to be able to do things like
# yum --disablerepo="*" --enablerepo=fedora install foo
to install things from the last stable release. But this fails since fedora.repo
uses $releasevar. Instead fedora.repo (and updates, updates-testing too) should
point to the last stable release. Because right now on Rawhide fedora.repo is
close to useless. Thanks for considering.
That would require modifying the file each and every release, and making it
harder for people to make adjustments to the repo files that carry over to the
next release should they upgrade. Perhaps what would be better is a way to
override $releasevar at yum envocation time. I'm closing this as WONTFIX.
