I understand that the real repositories are not ready yet but the yum repo 
files point to mirros which have been "faked up" top point fedora and updates 
to development (rawhide).  I was surprised that this was not done with RC-3 
also.  I am not sure not anaconda is setup and if it is looking for the 
repositories dynamically or not but I assume that it uses the same mirror 
lists that yum uses.  Therefore, I expected to see "fedora" and "updates" 
listed as network-accessible repositories even if they both point to 
(ultimately) development ... just like yum repo files.
