Packages for epel5, epel6, fedora 15, 16, 17 and rawhide are built
and on their way to a Fedora mirror close to you. They will cook
some days in testing before they reach the stable branches.

Please test and report karma through Koji at

In addition to the obvious new upstream release, this package
has got a patch for epel5/ppc, making it finally possible to
release an update for epel5.
