1) That advice is no longer true with Fedora 19. In my tests, MariaDB
Galera Cluster can be installed on Fedora 19, using the MariaDB repo,
with a simple:

sudo yum install MariaDB-Galera-server MariaDB-client

I've updated the page.

2) There's been some work happening. I'll follow up and update the bug tracker.

3) We just got Fedora 20 builder VMs set up in our buildbot last week.
Assuming no issues arise with them, Fedora 20 packages will come out
with the next releases of MariaDB (5.5.35, 10.0.8).
