The fedora-release currently in rawhide only has fedora and updates
enabled.  However if you at any point had modified your development
repo file, then you would have a .rpmnew file sitting there with
development disabled, but your modified one would still be enabled.  We
don't want to stomp on local configuration which is why .rpmnew would
get created.  This is why I stated that people should /ensure/, rather
than just trusting that the package upgrade did the right thing.
