Hi Jack,

Typically many people find that they can upgrade via yum from release to
release with no major problems. You may find that yum chokes on various
deps and so forth, but upgrading from test-->final will probably work.
Case in point, I just upgraded via yum from FC4-->FC5test2 with no issus.
