Re: Can I preupgrade to Fedora-11?

When I run preupgrade on my Fedora-10/KDE system
I am told "No releases available for upgrade",

in which case I am offered "Rawhide".

My question is: if I choose Rawhide
will I later be able to upgrade to Fedora-11?
Or do I have to wait until I am told there are
non-test releases available for upgrade?

When you choose to upgrade to Rawhide, at the end of each release cycle, it magically turns into the next Fedora Release (ie, the last update updates your fedora-release RPM to that of the version just released). You would actually have to go back and download the latest rawhide version of that RPM to continue to run Rawhide....

At least that's the way I understand it to work. I had a machine to which I had installed FC5-T2 and it auto-magically became FC5 on its release date with a "yum update".
