I'm well aware of this. So am I aware of ways how to script out the above described
As I dont see much more options to do it differently, nor do I wont
to scriplet the issue out, I wes hoping "unreleased software" would
be my shield.
I don't think you can get around adding a scriptlet for the upgrade
once the package left testing in branched. Many people (me too ;))
install Fedora around when beta is released, and it is bad to break
the upgrade process for them. Especially that the failure mode for
dir↔file switch is particularly nasty. We push people towards
installing branched early and doing more testing, and the corollary of
that is that breakage must be avoided if possible.
(I really hope that one day rpm will handle this on its own, but
that's a discussion for another time).
