If your upgrading from beta3, run a yum update and you will pull in a new fedora-release package that will include the new key for RC1 as well as new repository files. You will need to do some small house keeping in order to use the new repo:

This is something that remains unclear to me as well. How do the fixes
needed to build the updates (or the original f13 packages) get included?
Can the patches be included in the fedora packages (git) repository,
even when f13 is EOL?

Generally no. The patches should be pushed upstream into rawhide/F-15/F14 and koji admins can build patched rpms for the F-13 release if necessary. My understanding is that the ARM F-13 release is basically being marked as done and development in terms of package fixes and builds should be aimed at F-14 and later now.
