And it should pointed out that if this is not checked, you have a blank list, 
it is NOT possible to select from an uptodate F8 to F10.  That sucks.

Whats the deal in forcing everybody into rawhide when there is a show topper 
bug extant and holding up the F11 release?

That smacks of a rather massive insult to those of us who just want to use the 
machine.  It better work or there will be YAKubuntuI before the day is out.  
All I wanted to do was add fmit to its (F8 on a HP dv5120us) repertoire.  But 
F8 doesn't have libasound which the fmit build needs.  This F10 built it ok, 
and fmit itself hasn't been touched since F6 days, so why can't an F8 install 
build it?

Yeah, obviously getting rawhide shoved down our throats. :(
