That page talks about updating from F<n> -> F<(n+(1|2))>, not how to
disable rawhide before it moves on ;-)

knurd

P.S.: The YumUpgradeFaq likely should contain some general informations
about the yum shell, as that makes thing like this possible:

$ yum shell
update
remove dbus.i386
run

I needed exactly that some minutes ago when updating a machine to
rawhide, you could not do "$ yum remove dbus.i386; yum update", as
installed packages still depended on dbus.i386 (which doesn#t exist
anymore in rawhide iirc)

I'll see if I can add a few words about the benefits of the shell there
over the next few days...
