Not clear on when Martyn et al might make it available via CRAN, but in the mean time you can get R RPMS via the EPEL (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL).

It looks like the 2.11.0 RPM has not yet made it to the main EPEL repos as Tom has just pushed it to stable today (https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/R-2.11.0-1.el5), but you can download what appears to be stable release version RPMs here:


Martyn and Tom have worked hard to make CRAN and the EPEL repos compatible in terms of the R RPM build process, so you should be fine from either source.
