Just wanted a clarification on that statement. I thought the safer way
was to disable all the community repositories before using something
like yum upgrade or preupgrade. That way any hidden packaging bug in
community packages don't come in the way of the distro upgrade. After
the upgrade is finished, all one has to do is enable the repos again
and do a simple yum update, followed by a distro-sync with all repos
enabled. Could you clarify why you think upgrading with them enabled
is better?

Thanks,
