Description James Laska 2010-03-03 11:28:27 EST
Description of problem:

Preupgrade allows the user to specify updating their system to Rawhide.  Given that Rawhide now refers to the next development release (e.g. Fedora 14) [1] [2], should preupgrade also offer the ability to update to the current pending release (e.g. Fedora 13)?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 * preupgrade-1.1.4-1.fc12

Perhaps this issue is more appropriate for whomever maintains the http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/releases.txt file.

When using a local releases.txt file (see attachment), I'm able to have the pending Fedora 13 release available for preupgrade users.

I believe Matt Domsch from Fedora Infrastructure may manage the releases.txt file, adding to the cc list.

I just updated releases.txt with James's version, and pushed it out.  It'll hit the web servers in the next few hours.
