Will this do what you expect?
In the development cycle a number of packages were rolled back to a
previous version.

After the rollback to a previous version the installed version is
newer than the 'current' best on rawhide. Yum and up2date will not
track the system with the contents of rawhide.

Even an update from the distribution CD's does not sync the
system and the packages on the disks as far as I can tell.

Is there an easy way to detect these version reversals
as we close in on the final bits?

Is there a way to correctly match rawhide and a testing box?

If a package was installed --force or --oldpackage is there an rpm
command that will illuminate package dependency errors?

Perhaps a script built from: /var/spool/yum/development/header.info and
`rpm -qa`....

Thanks,
