Eventually, the wiki is to be moved to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ -
in fact the import is already supposed to be happening, I just think
that those of us that can do it, are kinda swamped

Most FC2 packages work. I think there are fedora.us repos of FC3 RPMS
online somwhere - try livna possibly, or download.fr.fedora.us

But definitely, the delay wasn't planned for, but since there was a
