  that would be a start, but it still wouldn't address the problem of
the current jigdo files (all right, at least the F10 i386 DVD jigdo
file) having at least two out-of-date package references.  and, no,
it's not really acceptable to tell people who want to use it to
manually edit the jigdo file to fix stuff like that.  that kind of
defeats the purpose of advertising a user-friendly way to get
upgrades.

  and on that note, i'll shut up now.
