Might not be following your question here.
Mostly, got it. Just the one item I'm unsure about. @URL: https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/software-update-dom0/ it mentions: -- To temporarily enable any of these repos, use the --enablerepo=<repo-name> option. Example commands: sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-dom0-current-testing sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-dom0-security-testing sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-dom0-unstable To enable or disable any of these repos permanently, change the corresponding boolean in /etc/yum.repos.d/qubes-dom0.repo. -- *by this if I ran sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-dom0-security-testing *once, I take it , that I am still on the Stable Track "repo" .... so somehow magically I have the current testing Xen version (I checked and do), but when the security Xen goes to Stable , they will just be integrated ..... so currently I have a combination of 1 time security Xen and the rest is "current" (Not testing) ? -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
