I see.  I also just realized that I don't have rawhide enabled.  For
some reason, I thought it would be, and that having rawhide enabled
was a good thing until the post-release update that moves me from
rawhide back to non-rawhide F11 (if I understand that process
correctly).

In any case, enabling rawhide didn't give me any new packages, as you
suggest.  I assumed rawhide was always at least as new (in terms of
version number) as update-testing, and similarly for updates-testing
for updates.  I guess that's not necessarily true around release time.
 I enabled updates-testing, and I do have lots of updates available
now.  So I guess I do want both updates-testing and rawhide enabled?

Thanks for all of the help.  I hope this hasn't been hashed out lots
of times already.  I just re-joined the testing list when I upgraded.
