I wish it was, but my posts to this list about it were ignored for a week,  
and generally so were the posts bitching about the grub2 rpm being supplied, 
its broken in that it only searches the boot its booted from.  The same grub2 
autoconfig'er in the Mint 8 install gets it right, finding all the the 
installed distros on the system but does make a couple of minor, easily 
fixable mistakes.

But you didn't want to hear it, vendor lock in and all that sort of politics.

In mint 8 for instance, I installed the fglrx stuff and my video is just 
under 10x faster than it is when running F10.  By the end of the week I will 
have switched to either mandriva or mint 8, both 64 bit installs, so its 
moot, I know the yellow in my cheerios didn't come from the milk.

Your treatment of redhat/fedora users with over a decade of use has finally 
reached the quitting point.  You refuse to fix openssh, hoping that would 
force me to install F12, and when I do and have problems, its go pound sand.

My hammer broke.  And the pieces have been deleted by over-writing that 

Cheers, Gene
