The gist of all this is that non-techies and newbs
have no knowledge of such things and this makes
Fedora (and perhaps all distros) rather difficult to
upgrade. A script to perform the upgrade would
be a great help to automate the process.
The suggestion that the script would/might get it
wrong, while you would/might get it right, is a
a mater of personal preference.
I vote for an upgrade script for all the steps
