Ugly broken paths in F7 to F8 upgrade

I am upgrading now from Fedora 7 to Fedora 8, and have discovered that some packages in Fedora 8 is "earlier" than in my current Fedora 7.

First of all, please, do not offer me the idea to upgrade to the latest Fedora 9 . I live in some production environment, and for some stability reasons prefer to switch to Fedora 8 (for the next half-year until it EOF'ed).

The packages which affect me are:

Fedora 7                          Fedora 8

ctapi-cyberjack-3.0.5-1.fc7       ctapi-cyberjack-3.0.4-1.fc8.i386.rpm

ctapi-cyberjack-pcsc-3.0.5-1.fc7  ctapi-cyberjack-pcsc-3.0.4-1.fc8.i386.rpm

dbus-python-0.82.3-1.fc7          dbus-python-0.82.0-2.fc8.i386.rpm

knetworkmanager-0.2.2-3.fc7       knetworkmanager-0.2-0.7.fc8.i386.rpm

libxcb-1.1-1.fc7                  libxcb-1.0-4.fc8.i386.rpm

libxcb-devel-1.1-1.fc7            libxcb-devel-1.0-4.fc8.i386.rpm

microcode_ctl-1.17-1.39.fc7       microcode_ctl-1.17-1.38.fc8.i386.rpm

nss-            nss-3.11.7-10.fc8.i386.rpm

proftpd-1.3.1-2.fc7               proftpd-1.3.1-1.fc8.i386.rpm

proftpd-ldap-1.3.1-2.fc7          proftpd-ldap-1.3.1-1.fc8.i386.rpm

proftpd-mysql-1.3.1-2.fc7         proftpd-mysql-1.3.1-1.fc8.i386.rpm

proftpd-postgresql-1.3.1-2.fc7    proftpd-postgresql-1.3.1-1.fc8.i386.rpm

rpmlint-0.83-1.fc7                rpmlint-0.82-2.fc8.noarch.rpm

rsync-2.6.9-6.fc7                 rsync-2.6.9-5.fc8.i386.rpm

Perhaps there are much more in the repos (which I don't use).

What the current status of such issues? Is it a correct state? IOW, can I leave things as is (ie. continue to use the correspond F7 packages) or should install F8 versions manually?

(Note, that I don't use anaconda, since prefer just "yum upgrade" + some little manual interventions).
