Default Ugly broken paths in F7 to F8 upgrade

I am upgrading now from Fedora 7 to Fedora 8, and have discovered that
some packages in Fedora 8 is "earlier" than in my current Fedora 7.

First of all, please, do not offer me the idea to upgrade to the latest
Fedora 9 . I live in some production environment, and for some stability
reasons prefer to switch to Fedora 8 (for the next half-year until it

The packages which affect me are:

rsync-2.6.9-6.fc7 rsync-2.6.9-5.fc8.i386.rpm

Perhaps there are much more in the repos (which I don't use).

What the current status of such issues? Is it a correct state? IOW, can
I leave things as is (ie. continue to use the correspond F7 packages) or
should install F8 versions manually?

(Note, that I don't use anaconda, since prefer just "yum upgrade" + some
little manual interventions).
