https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Rawhide#Yum_update_from_previous_release seems
to be essentially what you wrote, but it fails, thinking it needs
fedora-release-rawhide-13-0.6, which I'm sure was obsolete months ago,
instead of fedora-release-rawhide-14-0.4 which is currently on the mirrors.
'yum install
also fails with "cannot open". Apparently PYCURL cannot find anything from
mirrors.kernel.org, so I used wget on my server to pull it, copied locally,
tried yum localinstall, whereupon it told me failed dep
fedora-release-14-0.4. I fetched that the same way, and yum failed
complaining rpm is unsigned. Adding --nogpgcheck fixed that, but subsequent
'yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=rawhide update' fails with "cannot retrieve
metalink for repository: rawhide...." :-(
