You should usually only enable either fedora+updates+updates-testing
*or* rawhide, yeah.

if you enable them together, you'll mostly get rawhide, but in the case
where a package winds up newer in Branched than in rawhide (which isn't
*supposed* to happen - it's a packager error - but does, sometimes),
you'll get the one from branched. so you'd kinda have a mix.
