One of the big problems in using packages is that they can often be 
months or even years behind the latest version.  You may have the latest 
version available from the Fedora 17 repository, but it is a ...11 
version and the latest version is a ...12 version.  In this case, it 
seems to only be 13 days old, which is pushing things even for a key 
package.  ...11 is only 2 months old, so you should have to wait too 
long for the re-package.  I don't know if ...11 is security fix; 
packagers give priority to these.

that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
