Actually, that's mostly hyperbole. It will most likely work and work w/o
pain. There may be some occasional hangups but given the f7-f8 update
set it's not much that will be very painful at all.

I've done about 5 of them so far and in general they're pretty smooth -
just make sure you're on the latest yum from f7-updates-testing and on
the latest rpm before you proceed.
