Well, the only customization I ever did was add the Adobe and Livna
repositories.  I checked for the .rpmnew files, but there aren't any in that
directory.  In looking at the fedora.repo and fedora-updates.repo files they
still show Fedora 8.  In looking at the source RPM for this, the fedora.repo
and fedora-updates.repo files are always the same, and when the RPM is built
it substitutes the correct version information, or maybe it does this with a
pre-install script, but apparently it picked up the old version instead of
the new version information.  Even manually forcing a new install of the
package didn't fix the file.  I have now hand edited the file and that seems
to have fixed the issue, but I'm still not sure how it got this way.
