Comparing today's Fedora politburo with my colleagues over the last
three decades is a great disappointment.  We had such high hopes but you
kids just goof around.

You do not understand that beta testers are a valuable resource.  You
must not waste beta testers.  Don't make them spend hours filing rote
bug reports against packages which have not even been built to FC4.

Get on the command line, make Core and Extras "equivalent" and rebuild
them so all the packages match.  That's an hour or two typing and
probably a few days for the rebuild depending upon the power of your

Then you can start inviting people to beta FC4, because the jumble you
have now is not just pre-beta but pre-alpha.
