  • /test/ (Test releases of upcoming Fedora releases - i.e. 3.9.something will pop up in here next week)
  • /updates/ (updates to official releases)
  • /updates/3/ (updates to FC3)
  • /updates/testing/ (Updates that need further testing before release)
  • /updates/testing/3/ (Updates in testing for FC3)
  • /development/ (Development version of FC - aka Rawhide, this is not on linux.ed)
