There's once again a new snapshot today. (I haven't announced every new 
snapshot in the repository and will NOT announce them every time, just check 
for updates regularly. :-) )

Since there have been several bug fixes and improvements to PackageKit-zif 
as well, as of NOW, the PackageKit that is provided is no longer a straight 
rebuild, but has pk-backend-zif.c backported from git master (currently 
20110926, but there too, I will NOT make an announcement each time I update 
it). All the other PackageKit files are the same as in the Fedora 15 
package, only the zif backend is backported from master. (I will only 
backport other changes from master if they're needed to build the current 
zif backend. Currently, no such changes are needed.)
