Default Updates make DVD upgrade insecure. (was: AutoQA upgrade path failure makes no sense to me)

That would make bug 998 even more urgent than it already is – especially if
the updates repository were required, as that would change the upgrade from
secure to insecure. Currently it is possible to upgrade by DVD in a secure
way. It requires some manual checking but it can be done if you have the
knowledge. If packages are downloaded during the upgrade, then the upgrade is
insecure unless Anaconda learns to verify the signatures on the packages it
downloads.
