I *think* it will be in extras soon - there is a packager who was
working on it.


Not gonna happen (at least not by me) until the Extras people can figure out what their rules for package names are.

I was under the impression that the consensus was to stick with "nedit" rather than change to "NEdit". The OP was looking for a (familiar) package called "nedit", which is another good reason for sticking with that name.


Basil: if you want nedit quickly for FC4, I'd suggest downloading the FC3 package and then using "yum localinstall nedit-whatever.rpm" to install it. That should pull in any compatibility libraries that may be needed.
