I did some checking, and unfortunately 2.99.12 is the newest version we've
packaged for either f10 or f11.  It has something to do with the corosync
api's changing too rapidly, and the trouble with patching and rebuilding all
the packages that depend on it because they are using various versions of the
api... the hope is it will all be better when a stable corosync 1.0 release

In the mean time, Fabio was kind enough to make a set of srpms of all the
latest versions, http://fabbione.fedorapeople.org/srpm/ I just built and
installed corosync, openais and cluster srpms from there on my fedora 10
machine.  Started the cluster and mounted gfs with the result.

I limited what I built/installed to avoid some annoying dependencies, to

rpmbuild --rebuild corosync
rpm -Uhv corosync*
rpmbuild --rebuild openais
rpm -Uhv openais*
rpmbuild --rebuild cluster
rpm -Uhv cluster*
rpm -Uhv gfs*
rpm -Uhv --nodeps cman*
