RE: Why do we need FC version attached to the package name?



The problem is preupgrade normally pulls from release + updates, pulling from the DVD even now will not work because F10 + updates has newer file versions than are on the DVD.

Preupgrade could install a hook that recognises distro DVDs (or even 
CDs) when inserted in a running system, prompting the user "Would you 
like to upgrade to <release name>?", which would just run Preupgrade as 
usual, copying packages off the disc if possible.
