Well up2date did not do the right thing without intervention.

A user will have to use a command line and manually do:

  up2date install kernel-sourcecode


  yum install kernel-sourcecode

i.e. we should note for the record how kernel-source was not updated at the
same time that kernel was.  And there could be a version mismatch that
demands attention and manual action for those source oriented users.

   [/var/log]# grep kernel rpmpkgs

It is not the end of the world but documentation is sparse for FC2 
and we depend on RH9 docs.  This small change is not there.

At first I thought that this was just a couple slow mirrors and
I was going to fix it up in a week when I got a round two it.

I wonder if there are some rpm tricks that can let yum and up2date
make the transition.  It would have been nice to make this at the time
that FC2 released -- same time as the X, and system-config-* name
changes etc.
