Absolutely correct. Creating a new package list for FC2 is one of the
tasks which have to be done to make slinky support FC2. The other is to
use another version of rpm - the slinky rpm version cannot install the
FC2 rpms! So currently it is impossible to install FC2 with slinky.
There may be additional things to do, but these two were apparent for me
