Jack2 and ffado are moved to the official Fedora repos.

If your system is not heavily customized, this shouldn't be a problem.
One issue could be that you have a smaller /boot partition than what
preupgrade needs (I think 500MB). If this is the case, you should see
a popup error message before messing up your system though.

* except around Fedora 12, I had to manually enlarge the /boot
partition before running preupgrade.
