Except the file mentioned ships in a broken state.  I have:

up2date default#yum fedora-$ARCH-os
http://download.fedora.us/fedora/redhat/0.94/$ARCH/yum/os

all on one line.

Looks like 1) someone forgot a line break before the # and 2) that
up2date line should be commented out and the yum line should be valid,
instead.

Also, I would think you'd want to replace 0.94 with 0.95 for this release.
