Re: Fedora 17 RC4 declared GOLD ==> RC4 = FINAL
There was an update not long ago that disabled the updates-testing repo.
Without the updates-testing repo enabled, you won't get the regular updates until the final is released, since the only updates that were allowed to be pushed into the stable repo were only the blocker bug fixes.
If you wish the updates, you can enable updates-testing and pull them in. Or you can wait until the release and a lot of what is in updates-testing will be pushed into the stable repo.
