For F7, yes (at least for the moment), it will work.  For F8 and beyond,
it definitely won't.

The reason that the deltaurl line is commented is that it is against
Fedora policy to have a Fedora package receive data from a non-Fedora
site by default.  Yes, it's a bit byzantine, but we've already had one
server get shut down, so it's probably best this way.

With yum-presto in Rawhide, you don't have to set any deltaurls (though
you do have to set the baseurl to point to the test repository).
