Avoid broken upgrade paths like the plague. They bear a big risk of
breaking Yum dist-upgrades, which in turn give burnt users a good
opportunity to bash Fedora. Any problems with the repositories and package
updates result in bad publicity. It's worse enough already that some
mirrors sit on half-mirrored metadata for several days.
