No. Just read: GRASS 6!
To make it clear, I have extended the page:
* GRASS GIS Manager
This manager is integrated with GRASS 6.
-> the prototype is already available in 5.7
* QGIS: separate project
* JAVAGRASS: separate project

Right. Obviously, when Fedora packages 5.7.0 in 2004
it cannot contain 6.0.0beta1 or later form 2005.
The magic word is: "please update". :-)
And, or, seek a volunteer to make a new Fedora RPM.
For those, who have made the current 5.7.0 Fedora RPM,
it should be rather easy.
