Preupgrade to F11 Beta from F10


I am using Fedora 10 and I want upgrade to Fedora 11 Beta using preupgrade tool. Problem is, that F11 Beta is not in list, there is only Rawhide. I found entry in bugzilla about that issue, but this bug is closed and there is no other info when this issue will be fixed.

I think, that this is big problem, because there are many users which want install Beta, but other methods than preupgrade are for them very uncomfortable and useless.

Thank you for your replies

OK, but this is very confusing and should be named exactly as release name (because Fedora 11 Alpha or Fedora 11 Beta are normal releases, testing, but releases). Other problematic thing is, that there is checkox with text: "Display unstable test releases (e.g. Alpha and Beta releases) above" and this very confusing, because you are awaiting option names including word "Alpha" or "Beta" in its name. And finally - Rawhide is there pernamently, so you are unable to recognize if this Beta or very very unstable testing release only for ethusiasts...

Aditionally - I do not agree with moving my post to category named "Alpha, Beta & Snapshots Discussions (Fedora 11 Only)" because this is not problem of Fedora 11 (testing software) but this is problem with Fedora 10, stable software...

File a enhancement report in http://bugzilla.redhat.com against preupgrade. The wording could use a little improvement

beta, f10, f11, preupgrade
