Okay, thanx for that clarification.

But isn't that saying it's _in_ Fedora Extras?
Or is that another repository you're getting it from?

The line between Fedora Core and Extras is rather blurry,
especially with the new Anaconda installer and Pup that taps
Fedora Extras during the install process itself (assuming you
have an Internet connection).

In either case, it's still good to see this.
