Did I cross you at some time, Mr. Davidson? If so, I'm sorry for all
the egregious harm I've caused you.

In fact, I was not asking for help upgrading from F9 to F10. That was
just big-picture information about why I was working with F9 at all. A
careful reading of my original post will reveal that I was writing to
the list because yum was refusing to update a fresh install of F9. So
I was asking for help resolving an issue with yum completely unrelated
to upgrading. Which help I received, by the way.

In any case, thanks for your proxy indignation on behalf of another poster.
