At the moment there is not. We're working on the platform bring up and
in the coming weeks there will an initial Fedora 19 based image
released that will be able to run on the free ARM Foundation model
[1]. Eventually there will be hardware available but I'm not sure when
that will be as there's not been anything publicly announced.
Ultimately we're very much in the prep stages for a mass rebuild of
Fedora for aarch64 when we eventually get actual HW, at the moment a
build of something like gcc takes days.
