With a Yum-based distribution upgrade, you typically perform an upgrade in
two steps. First you update to the right "fedora-release" package, so
variables like $releasever used in your *.repo files expand to '11'
instead of '10'. Then you run a plain "yum update", which automatically
chooses the Fedora 11 repos.

Alternatively, you hardcode the baseurls of the repos you want to upgrade
to.

[And as long as there is no F11 GA repo yet, you need to enable rawhide
manually.]

With Yum? Yes.

The more packages in F11 Updates, the more likely you need them in order
to replace your F10 Updates, which may be seen as newer than F11 GA. Same
applies to Test Updates.
