afaik, not yet.  julian was interested in it so he took it over.  the
structure is there already, but we need to fix the related bb files in
OE because most of the time install a -dev package will trigger the
installation of some non exist packages.  this will cause opkg failure.

hmm i believe some OE guys use fedora.  actually i did bring your question
to them but he doesn't use the experimental (? I can't recall the right name)
version you're using by then.
