Yes I can give you a little bit of a heads up on the F14 side of things,
and also

As you can see, I was working on LTSP in F13 and and got the package
working fully on I386 & x86_64. As I can also see that Warren seems to
have gone AWOL again, On monday when I get to work I will take over
BZ652896 and again work to get the .rpm's for F14 I386 and x86_64 pushed
up to the official repos. I will keep the BZ up2date with my progress,
so please keep an eye on it.

If the package gets into F13/F14 we have a very good chance of getting
it into RHEL or with a little more work on my part, we might be able to
get it into CentOS.

Sorry it has been like this, I didn't want to mess with Warren's
packages once he said he was back (2010-09-25) but it looks like he has
gone AWOL again, so I will get back on to it and get LTSP updated and in
to the official repos for both F13 and F14 as soon as I can.
