Thanks for all the testing, folks - all the updates now have sufficient
karma. We're now in another stage of the Render Fedup Safe operation
which involves deleting affected copies of upgrade.img , so you may find
it difficult to fedup to test this (and for any other reason) for a
short time - don't worry, this is expected and intended. Once things
shake out we'll post official instructions on the 'best way' to fedup to
