ipa-server is in centos6 'CR' and will be in 6.1   its currently 2.0.0 
which is a lot more comprehensive than 1.x was.   I do note the IPA 
project is up to 2.1, maybe rpmforge or someone can start rolling these 
up for us all.

I started reading about FreeIPA last night and am real interested in 
firing up a test instance in my lab at work, which is an unholy mess of 
linux (assorted versions), solaris, and a few windows servers.
