I'm (almost) more bothered about the packages I installed manually! Being sloppy, I didn't record the list.
Yum will pick the highest revision number package available from the configured and enabled repositories - and also bring its dependencies. But that can be wrong in cases where you use 3rd party repos to get one or a few packages that are newer than the distribution base and these repos also contain additional newer packages that you don't want to override the base - or cause conflicts with packages from other repositories. That's probably not so much of a problem with fedora as it is with Centos where the base packages are fairly old and there is more reason to need some newer ones.
