	By "unofficial fedora-upgrade tool" I suppose you mean "yum 
upgrade"? I've seen posts about it, but never tried it myself.

	I had somehow missed the information on full release as of 12/9; 
so I guess I'm jumping the gun a bit. I apologize for that.

	However, as I tried to say before, I'm left with my two main PCs 
running F21 Alpha and respectively F21 Beta. Beta is all right. I've 
often installed a Beta on an expendable machine -- not that I can help 
much, if at all, but just to get a foretaste.

	However, I've never touched an Alpha before, and I'm stunned at 
having no problems, so far <touch wood!>. I guess what I'm after is any 
clue on whether I'm better off putting my Beta install medium into the 
Alpha machine, or simply running fedup on it. Or, I suppose, keeping both 
as they are and hanging on for another month. Thoughts??
