My interpretation of the below is:

1. There is a "factory" yum repo now available for VZ7. The meaning of 
is the same as "rawhide" for Fedora or "sid" for Debian, in other words 
this is the
bleeding edge, latest untested packages.

2. In order to use it, you have to do the following:

* Upgrade virtuozzo-release package to the one available in

* Enable the factory repo by running "yum-config-manager --enable factory".

* Run "yum update".

3. If you want to switch back to "latest stable" version:

* Disable the factory repo by running "yum-config-manager --disable 

* Run "yum distro-sync".

4. If yum-config-manager is not available, run "yum install yum-utils".

Sergey, please let us know if there's anything I misinterpreted or missed.
