what "dnf system-upgrade" is for?
If you install the pre-release, you are installing F31. When F31 is
released, there will be no difference. The branch of F31 (a week or two
ago) from rawhide is where the difference occurred, and Fedora policy is
to default to the branch rather than to continue following rawhide.
There was some confusion this time because of gating in rawhide, but
not in the branch, but that will likely not occur again.
dnf system-upgrade is for moving from one release to another, say F30
to F31. Doesn't apply to the pre-release, because the transition from
pre-release to release is transparent to the user.
