Yeah, I have ansible-base + a few collections in rawhide now. 
But I would suggest holding off on it a bit more as from what I
understand it's going to be renamed ansible-core in 2.11 and things are
still in a bit of flux. (Also things like docs building needs some more
things packaged and tests need a few more things). 

You're welcome to look at the spec and collections rpms if you want to
start testing things now.
