Default Fedora 8, Limited updates to F9 Release, Possible?

I have f8, and basically want to keep it as close to end-of-live.
Can I in the meantime when F9 is released, add in an F9 repo,
for specific update(s). That I may need
equire?

I looked at the yum updating page:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/YumUpgradeFaq

but from what I gather, it would replace F8 with F9 repos.
I would like to have both, if possible.

So I can keep what I have set for myself,
take advantage of F9 "tweaksessential" updates.
Without doing the whole backup restore thing.

I think you'll find that most of the F9 packages depend on different
versions of essential libraries, so it's not really practical. Recently
I tried updating Evolution from Rawhide and yum wanted to change over
100 other packages. Naturally I declined.

You should be able to pull in specific rpms using:
yum --enablerepo=development install whatever

Which is equivalent to what I did, i.e. updating from Rawhide. See my
previous reply.

A great deal of programs that depend on library upgrades were rebuilt
for Fedora 9. That is probably the reason why so many programs were
included for update. A lot of times though it is dangerous to try to
pull in pieces of Fedora 9 into Fedora 8. For example the X server is
quite different and versions for Fedora 8 may be later than what is used
in rawhide, updates testing anyway.
