rpm -qif `which olpc-session`
reports that olpc-session is owned by olpc-utils. You can track down the
sources for olpc-utils by reading the olpc-utils spec file out of Fedora
CVS, or by asking around, as you have done.

Nope. You'd want to run something like:
koji latest-pkg dist-olpc2 olpc-utils
or, on a recent build,
rpm -qi olpc-utils

As it happens, the olpc-utils source code is maintained at
