Yes, but how do I upgrade FC1 to FC2 test? yum? ftp?

You've just proven that upgrades from test1 to test2 should not be
supported. Consider the following:

valid:    FC1 -> FC2 test1
valid:    FC1 -> FC2 test2
valid:    FC1 -> FC2 test3
valid:    FC1 -> FC2

invalid:  FC2 test1 -> FC2 test2
invalid:  FC2 test1 -> FC2 test3
invalid:  FC2 test1 -> FC2
invalid:  FC2 test2 -> FC2 test3
invalid:  FC2 test2 -> FC2
invalid:  FC2 test3 -> FC2

---------------------------------------------------

 based on seth's recent posting, i can see the complications.  but all
of the above can be summarized as follows, no?

1) in a perfect world, you should be able to upgrade from an official
  release to any later release -- test or otherwise.  certainly, trying to
  upgrade from FC1 to some FC2-test release is just trying to emulate
  an eventual real upgrade from FC1 to FC2.  i mean, that's the whole
  point of the beta test -- to see if that upgrade will work.

2) there is *no* support for upgrading *from* any test release to anything else.

that's it. two simple rules, right?
