Fedora Unity ( http://fedoraunity.org ) releases respins. I haven't
used their F8 respins, but I have used earlier ones.
I have also gone the yum upgrade method. Not specifically the one
above, but I looked at the link and it is similar to the one I used.
No-one recommends skipping a version, but you can try it if you are
brave. Just make sure you have backups, including a mysql dump so you
can restore the database. If you do end up going to F7 (you can upgrade
by installing the F7 CD and selecting upgrade), you should be able to
use the yum upgrade method to go to 8.
