it works a remarkably large amount of the time is what makes me do it that 

seriously, it is not the official way but depending on what you're 
running/using a yum update to the next release will often work.

normal caveats apply:YMMV, you get to keep all the little pieces, etc.

but if you find situations where it cannot work, report them - I can 
probably explain if it is likely an insurmountable situation where 
preupgrade/anaconda is required or whether it is a packaging issue or just 
a yum bug.
