I used to try to sync with fedora package up to Nov  6 2006, but then
the olpc branch was used, and thing diverged so much (with cross
compilation being in gansh spec file, and kde4 stuff in fedora speec
file) that I think it is not really doable to sync with fedora branch, 
at least to active feora branches. In general, fedora packages will always
be 'in the future' due to fedora moving so fast, with regard with a
developper setup just wanting to do some development and not interested
in testing upcoming stuff.
