OK, that is far too much for me, so you mean - GIMP for Fedora. :-)
AFAIR Mathias has decided to provide gimp-1.3 (unstable[?] developement 
version) in main repository. As for now, this version of gimp (1.3) was 
not included in main repository. It was only in testing/ directory for 
RHL9 and so on. Maybe it is a mistake, but keep in mind that FreshRPMS 
is not yet officialy (officialy due to FreshRPMS main site) Fedora repo. 
So it havent happened before in *official* repo, nor happened yet - 
since it is not yet official. :-) But it is not really serious issue, 
unles you need both GIMP's or only old/stable one (1.3 is far better for 
me) - in case you need older one, just pin it with apt and it'll be OK. 
Not a big deal for me.
