In a matter of weeks, the Fedora CVS server will be in place, and
updates will be as simple as doing a 'cvs update', 'make srpm'
and then building the srpm locally.

diffs of the binaries has been discussed to death, with no resolution
that I've seen.

Also, as I said in the other reply, kernel updates for FC1 should slow
down dramatically very soon.
