But where exactly are they? I've tried finding packages like "*luci*" and 
"*conga*" with yum. I looked into the packages you mentioned previously 
(modcluster, ricci, cluster-snmp and cluster-cim). I tried a repoquery for 
"*luci*", "*Luci*", "*conga*" and "*Conga*" but none of the resulting 
packages have anything to do with clustering.

Apparently my timing for diving into this was a bit unfortunate. A bit 
earlier and I would have found things to be closer to the current 
documentation on the web. A bit later and the documentation probably would 
have reflected the current state of things more.

Thanks for the pointers so far. That information definitely helped to clear 
some of the confusion surrounding the current state of cluster related 
technologies in fedora for a newbie like me.
