What Others Think

If you have sufficient free space in your /boot (to store a sort of mini livecd), you can use preupgrade also. There is a CLI. yum install preupgrade preupgrade-cli

I'd have to recommend against this, because it can be unsafe and is not normally a supported upgrade path. Also, you would need to manually make sure that you merge the rpmnew files as there might have been major configuration changes. Things can change in incompatible ways between releases. Normally the preupgrade tool is designed to move from release to release and resolve these problems. You can also use the upgrade profile of anaconda. I wouldn't recommend using yum directly in most cases.
