It was said that packages that did not need to be rebuilt would not be
rebuilt to save time for more important things. Look in your FC7 install
and you will see both FC6 and FC7 packages. Look in your FC8 install and
you will see FC6, FC7, and FC8 packages. There are packages with FC6,
FC7, FC8, and FC9 in their name in Rawhide. *If* there was an update,
for whatever release FC7, or FC8 it would be available.

It gets tiresome reading the 'panic attacks' does it not?
