The way the releases generally work is that if you're running a
pre-release of some sort, at the appropriate time the "fedora-release"
package will be upgraded to a version that points your yum files to the
stable release repositories.  So at that point the box will "become"
real Fedora 10 and continue receiving stable updates on that branch.
People who want to *keep* using Rawhide typically take extra steps to
continue on that branch.
