I'm currently building it and will push it to testing ASAP.  The main
difference is that it supports xz-compressed RPMS (which shouldn't
matter for CentOS) and it has a python API (which will be useful).

I think presto should work with any modern version of yum, including
3.2.22.  In fact, I have at various times used it on my CentOS 5 boxes.
I'll see about branching it for EPEL.

Fedora is using createrepo, not presto-utils to generate their
deltarpms.  Presto-utils should be deprecated (or at least, mainly used
for pruning out old drpms, etc).
