The reason we're making it now is because the behavior didn't become
apparent until /after/ we killed betanag, and since that was extremely
late in the cycle we have to fix things extremely late in the cycle.
Perhaps next time it would be prudent to do a test build in the "final
format" prior to this point in the schedule.

I'm not going to remove the rawhide repo from the fedora-release, it's
how people get moved to rawhide when they want to make that jump.  If
you want to work out some way to filter rawhide like repos at
buildinstall time, have at it I guess.  It would be interesting to see
how this could be done in a non-Fedora specific kind of way.

I honestly don't see why the line has to be at "show me every
repo" (except for the ones that have -debuginfo or -source in the
name...) instead of "show me the repos that would be enabled by default
post-install" which seems to me to be a much safer set to offer the
user.
