This is a multipart question:
1) Open source
It always has been, as far as I remember at least
2) Packaged as RPMs
Available since times immemorial at www.jpackage.org
Although you can use the JPackage.org RPMs with proprietary JDKs (maybe
even with GCJ, I haven't tried), what you want is a set of RPMs
pre-compiled with GCJ and bundled with Fedora.
While I can't tell if that is in the plans, I can tell that it needs
maven2 and that will come in Fedora 7. So, at least for Fedora 7+ there
is hoe. For FC6 and previous there is no chance.
