Yes, sorry to be not that specific.

I am in the middle of the old way, however I tried it as per the wiki 
yum clean all # cleans up everything
# skrip rpm key import as there is no link for F13
yum update yum # ok, no updates, however it loads all the cache files!
yum --releasever=14 update --skip-broken
# just offers me ordinary F12 updates

Here I gave up and canceled as the process did not fulfill my 
expectations. IMHO, this "yum update yum" has to be followed by "yum clean 
all", otherwise those steps do not work, but this come to my mind after I 
just got to what I was used to and updated the fedora-release-* manually.
