It'll probably be a bit before RPMS are out, but Axel's pretty quick :D 
I've been compiling since mid .19-fixes, checked out from SVN.  While the
instructions aren't on svn.mythtv.org yet, just substitute 20 for 19 in
the svn co command, and build from instructions on the wiki.  Not hard at
all, as long as you have the build dependancies installed.  (I'm building
on Ubuntu, but should be similar deps)
