The packages are in Fedora, but AFAIK, the infrastructure work remains
to be done.  The problem is integrating the building of deltarpms into
the Fedora buildsystem.  I attempted it, but writing the yum plugin and
its associated utils was far easier than integrating it into the
buildsystem.  Others have offered to do the buildsystem integration, but
it doesn't seem to be going anywhere (as far as I can see).

I've been keeping up presto-enabled repositories for Centos 5 (i386 and
x86_64) and well as Fedora (8, 9, 10 and Rawhide, i386) at
