It's there. I just installed it. Trying to find some documentation 
right now. You guys that are experimenting with it, I would 
highly suggest you take ten minutes and read the smartpm faq 
which is here: http://labix.org/smart/faq
Also, there's a script that's installed by the Livna repo rpm, 
which will take care of configuring Livna for Smart if you run 
it. See the instrux at the Livna site. That Smart faq will show 
you how to configure all your other repos. As I mentioned earlier 
in this thread, Smart is a bit more tedious to configure than 
yum, especially if you want to create a mirror list, but the faq 
explains it all. One nice thing is, since you're inputting the 
mirrors by hand, you can choose a smaller selection than the ones 
in the mirror lists, and pick sites that are closest to you 
geographically. There's also a Fedora Smart configuration 
package, which will set up all the Fedora repos for you. The 
first time you open Smart, if you've not done so, it will ask you 
whether to include your current yum repos, one by one, in its 
configuration - make sure you say yes to all those dialogs. It's 
far easier to delete them later if you get a felt need, than to 
create them fresh. Once you get it all up, make sure you go to 
menu item Edit/Channels and make sure only the repos you want to 
use are checked!
