Thanks, Kevin, for these helpful answers.  One clarification please:
When you say

> packages (with full file names or URLs for each).

does "full file names" mean the "full name of the rpm" including the
version numbers as found in "updates-testing", or does it mean the
"full rpm name of the de-installed packages from "updates" or
something else.

(I may take your advice about waiting. Then again, there's nothing
liking trying something new in order to learn.  I hope I don't learn
that I should have taken your advice. :-)
