Well, it's never quite that simple - and there is a MD-0.11 rpm sitting
on my machine at home. Personally, I don't know why MD is a candidate
for FE when it really should be in Core. I have a feeling that it's down
to why RH accepted Mono. I certainly get a feeling it was taken somewhat
grudgingly based on the number of people reviewing the packages (though
they are slowly getting through!)

FC6t1 isn't just around the corner either - it's a month or so off!

Currently, gtksourceview-sharp and monodoc are being reviewed, though I
do have boo and ikvm support built into my rpm of MD, so all 4 need
approval before MD gets the go light.
