If you don't already set IGNORE based upon the linux osrelease it would
be a good idea to do so before you commit this. And I think we need a
repocopy from fc4 for this.

When we change this we also need to change the portrevision. If you
want to commit it, go ahead. I was waiting for a functional change to
the fc4 port to commit this at the same time.
If you don't want to commit this to fc4, just integrate it into fc6.
