Time to open my mouth and *prove* (again) I'm an idiot. I don't believe
up2date-4.1.21 resolves these variables for you... I did a "grep -r
releasever *" in the up2date build tree and didn't find a hit, so my
guess is that it doesn't. I didn't change anything other than the code
to insert the FedoraLegacy.org public key in the rpm keyring, and the
associated messages.

I also think I'm recalling correctly that the FC1 version of up2date
doesn't [didn't?] do mirror definitions, the way the FC2 version does,
and providing a single mirror address wouldn't be the Right Thing To Do
with possible users from across the globe. (Wishful thinking, I know.)
:-)  So I decided to leave this alone, in the hopes that people would
substitute their own local mirror URLs to avoid flogging the
FedoraLegacy.org site itself, as requested in previous postings to the
list by Jesse K.

I suppose I might take a look at the FC2 up2date and see if I can fudge
it similarly. HTH, please advise if not.
