Both fedora-easy-karma and fedora-packager are breaking upgrade paths, this 
inheritance problem is just another side effect of that. The packages have 
to be pushed to stable either simultaneously or in decreasing release order. 
Both the fedora-packager maintainer and you: please queue your F13 updates 
to stable ASAP to fix the upgrade path (which will also fix this inheritance 
glitch). (And yes, fedora-packager needs to be pushed first, that's the 
first offender here.) And next time please don't push out a F12 update 
without pushing out the equivalent update for F13 first or at the same time.
