If you're using Fedora as a desktop, I've found that mostly the OS doesn't
matter and I can do upgrades just by copying my home directory. The only
thing I really change on the system is to enable sudo. Google for "fedora
upgrade copy home directory" for more information.
I personally advocate that, and coin the process "wipegrade".
Please note, that the aforementioned bug about root(/) being formatted
regardless of user-choice in f7-livecd, was discovered by someone who
had /home as a subdir on their / volume, and thought that it would
survive the installation, when in fact it did not.
