There was an article about this on FedoraNews soon after the release of
GNOME 2.12: <>

Essentially, you configure your system to use a third-party repository
for all of the GNOME 2.12 stuff.

Please note that is probably entirely unsupported by the Fedora dev
team, and it can easily break your system if you're not very careful.
I've not tried this, so I can't comment on it further.
