Description of problem:
While repairing a slightly corrupted /usr/share, I had to do a 'yum install fedora-release-notes'. What I actually got was:
% rpm -qi fedora-release-notes
Name : fedora-release-notes Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version : 8.92 Vendor: Fedora Project
Release : 2 Build Date: Mon 22 Sep 2008 03:43:42 PM EDT

Group : System Environment/Base Source RPM: fedora-release-notes-8.92-2.src.rpm

Summary : Release Notes for Fedora 8.92
These are the official Release Notes for Fedora 8,
I checked several Rawhide mirror sites to rule out our local mirror being broken - the first 5 I checked all had 8.92 rather than a current version.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This happens during the brief period between Beta and the Preview Release, when documentation produces a preview of the true F10 Release Notes. Because of an artifact of the versioning of the tarball archives we create, we can't produce a 9.92 version until there are truly 9.92 tarballs available. That should happen in a few weeks. Until then, what looks like a version regression can simply be ignored.
Oh, OK.. long as it's a known issue. :) What really threw me was that the Description: part of the RPM said 'for Fedora 8' rather than either 9 or 10...
