This is the first "secondary arch" release to be available and we are
still working out how to do things.  I expect by F10 we should be
releasing within a day and hopefully with all identical package versions
as the primary arches.

All changes we needed for ia64 are in Fedora CVS so there are no special
ia64 patches floating around for ia64.

Not quite, I think we have about 98% of the packages building on ia64.  

Back at F8 I think we had about 80% or so.  Also F8 was built completely
from SRPMs outside of koji with hacked up scripts.  We now build under
koji/CVS just as the primary arches except for ours is a separate koji
server.  There has been major progress over the past 6 months.
