? Not sure what you mean.

The packages that implement the /usr move feature - moving everything
from /bin into /usr/bin and /lib into /usr/lib and so on - landed into
main Rawhide on Friday. That means that when you do an upgrade with
boot.iso, it will be using the post-/usr move packages. However,
anaconda doesn't yet, AFAIK, have the necessary code to prepare the
system for the /usr move before it happens. So basically, if you try and
do an upgrade to post-/usr move packages (i.e. what's in Rawhide, but
*not* what's on the TC1 DVD, as TC1 was composed before the /usr move
packages landed in Rawhide) at present, it seems likely that it will

I'm not sure what's the status on adding the necessary code to anaconda
to handle the /usr move preparation.
