I know this is not a SL mailing list ... :-)

SL goes through alphas, betas, RCs before the GA (scheduled for March
2011). The SL developers recommend a fresh install for each test
release. For example, during the alpha release, they did a massive
rebuild (>200 packages). The version number remained the same, so 'yum
update' will not get the rebuilt packages.

Right, this is not a SL mailing list ...
