Sure. For the moment Fedora/EPEL are unaffected.

Going forward new upstream releases of OpenStack
will not be packaged for EPEL and instead be packaged
in the RDO repositories.  OpenStack Grizzly for example
is now available from the RDO repository but EPEL will
remain at the OpenStack Folsom release.

Since OpenStack upstream releases largely coincide
with Fedora releases at present, each new Fedora
release will get a corresponding Openstack upstream release.
Fedora 19 will have Grizzly for example, and RDO
will make other combinations more easily available,
so one can install Grizzly on Fedora 18 from the
RDO repositories for example.
