Hm, if I inspect my /etc dir, the up2date configuration does not point
to rawhide (but fedora-update-released). Rawhide had been used during
the beta as an intermediate solution. So a new fedor user should not
suffer from those quirks with rawhide.

RedHatter did always said that on the lists. Someone who participates at
the beta should know about that issue. So I think it is not that big
