Q.  How can I upgrade to the beta of the next release with dnf?

A.  This probably isn't advised but I tried this on a VM and it worked.

I found the files for the OS doing this:
https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-26&arch=x86_64

I first looked for a "beta" repo.  But there wasn't one.
But there was a "release" repo that had the next version (in this case 26).
I downloaded fedora-release-26.rpm and installed it with:

rpm -Uvh fedora-release-26.rpm
Then I did:
dnf update
It updated about 2,000 packages.
