   ??  Yesterday's (23) updates included,
fedora-release-notes-8.0.0-1
fedora-release-8-2       and it was noted in 'rawhide report'  that 
this update would disable -development an enable -updates. Which it 
did.    $ cat /etc/fedora-release  Fedora release 8 (Werewolf)

   So I disabled fedora.repo an -updates, an reenabled -development.  
This mornin (24) I was able to update about 30 packages.  So are 
these fc8's going to be in F8 next week, or the beginning of F9  ?
