dist-f8-updates (and dist-f8-updates-testing even more so) will ALWAYS have 
some packages with higher EVRs than dist-f9, this is normal and unavoidable, 
how else would you suggest to backport a new version of a package which wasn't 
in F9 final to F8 updates? Of course dist-f9-updates should get the same 
update, but that's all we can do, we can't magically go back in time and change 
what was released with F9 final!

Similarly, but more subtly, comparing dist-f8-updates-testing with 
dist-f9-updates as the script now does also makes no sense. If an update should 
hit F8 and F9 updates at the same time, it also has to be tested at the same 
time! So the only thing we can reasonably compare dist-f8-updates-testing with 
(other than dist-f10) is dist-f9-updates-testing. dist-f8-updates-testing will 
ALWAYS have some packages with higher EVRs than dist-f9-updates.
