MongoDB 1.8 in Fedora

As MongoDB’s 1.8 release cycle is drawing to a close, I decided to update the Fedora 15 packages of MongoDB to the 1.7.x branch. The upgrade process from 1.6 to the 1.7.x/1.8.x series should be fairly straightforward. On non-replication/non-sharded setups it should be completely transparent: just upgrade the RPMs and restart; everything should work. For replication/sharded setups, just follow the official documentation.

Once the official 1.8.0 is released I will be pushing updates into all existing Fedora and EPEL repos. As always, please test and let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!

FOSDEM also followed the annual tradition, starting off with a dance:
