Ok, so backing out means to revert the update trough a yum downgrade.
Where's the problem?
Well, for one thing downgrading doesn't always work, but aside from that
I was merely pointing out that the simple disabling of updates-testing
doesn't back you out of anything, which is what you actually said
(perhaps not what you meant to say). It's best to be clear about these
things or less experienced readers might get the wrong idea.
