Thanks, I've just experienced the same dependency resolution problem
while trying to update my F12 beta install today:

It states: xorg-x11-proto-devel conflicts with libXxf86-dga-devel

Via the GUI I cannot continue without removing xorg-x11-proto-devel from
the install list. This is not a problem when there's only one conflict.
It would be nice if PacketKit would be able to circumvent those problems
or present a list of offending/conflicting packages to deselect.
