Yeah, well, I'm upgrading a user's system to FC19, and I don't want to see
your problems with trying to maintain that, um, alpha software.

The new updater is called fedup. *Boy*, did they choose the correct name.
No info during the first part, after the reboot, whether you hit <esc> or
one of the function keys, then it acts like it hangs, and, in fact, it
*is* hung, as in power cycle the sucker, then it's coming up and *now* it
installs all its packages....

And they call 19 Schroedinger's Cat. I agree, and they don't want to let
you see if it's alive or dead....
