I have had requests for mongodb 2.2.0 for Fedora 17, as well as EPEL 6
and 5.  I am going to build for those tomorrow and let things sit in
testing for at least a week (2 weeks for EPEL).

The only concern I have received thus far is whether packages will need
to be rebuilt against the new mongodb 2.2.
