Re: Beware: External repos can break key transition

Not really. Everyone with xine-lib-extras-nonfree installed who didn't migrate 
to the new key yet is going to be hit by it, as the matching xine-lib only 
shows up once the newkey repo is enabled, and the yum update which should do 
that will fail due to broken dependencies (chicken&egg at work, the "chicken" 
is working "yum update", the "egg" is the new fedora-release package).

Only a selective update (with --skip-broken or --exclude, or by manually 
listing what to update - note that for F9, a new PackageKit is also needed, so 
please DON'T just "yum update fedora-release") can bring the user out of this 
mess.

The easiest way out for a new user is to use the PackageKit GUI, click 
on "Review updates" and uncheck the xine-lib-extras-nonfree update, then apply.

All the folks who claim there is no problem aren't affected because they 
updated immediately after the new fedora-release went out, before the 
xine-lib-extras-nonfree update happened in Livna. (Congratulations, you managed 
to update within a couple hours of the announcement! ;-) )
