In a few hours, updates for Fedora 8 and Fedora 9 will start hitting
mirrors.  These updates are designed to transition users from our old
repo locations to new locations that have all our updates re-signed with
a new set of keys.  

Most users will simply need to apply the offered updates, and later
apply any further updates, and verify/import the new GPG key.

The process to getting new updates is two stage.

Stage 1) Users configured to get updates from existing repos will see a
small set of updates available in the next few hours/days.  These
updates include fedora-release, PackageKit, gnome-packagekit, and unique
(for Fedora 8, only fedora-release is offered).  These updates should be
applied as soon as possible.

Stage 2) Once the above updates have been applied, your update tools
(yum, PackageKit, pirut) will see a new repository and a larger set of
updates available.  This is your new standard flow of updates, that will
continue to see new updates as the lifetime of Fedora 8 and 9 progress.

There will be further milestones in the future that involve redirection
of release package repos to match that of updates, and removing of old
gpg key from rpm trust.
