My point is that nearly all of these are from the 'updates-testing' repository.

Should I still be using this now F18 is 'live'? Or does it not matter?

Just want to be sure. Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: F18 Yum Update query

That is entirely up to you.

I have had excellent results with leaving the updates-testing repo enabled on my machines here, but there is a chance that an update will get in there that might break something. It hasn't happened often, but it can happen.

If you disable the updates-testing repo, it will be a little longer before you receive the update, but it goes through a little more user testing before being pushed to the regular updates repo.

It's mainly just a matter of choice whether you enable or disable the updates-testing repo.

I would recommend that if you have kmod packages installed from rpmfusion, and you have the Fedora updates-testing repo enabled, then you also enable the rpmfuison updates-testing repos so that you will get the kernel modules when you update your kernel.
