Hi Bruno,

Thanks for your advice. If you preupgrade from f10 to f12, the default 
space in /boot is not enough, and as you said, tune2fs is needed to 
release more space.

But this issue doesn't happen if preupgrading from f11 to f12 with 
default setting in /boot. Since now the test cases are designed for 
testing new development release(rawhide), we mainly focus on 
preupgrading from Fedora 11/12 to Rawhide/Fedora 13. Older releases are 
no longer planed to test. :-)
