saving downloads (expensive in some places) by copying the cached yum 
packages from an already-installed XO to the next XO on which XSCE would 
be installed.  Having just installed XSCE 0.3 on an XO-1.5, I went 
looking in /var to see what was cached there.  And in directory 
/var/cache/yum/i386/18/xs-extra/packages/ I found a bunch of rpms 
(including ejabberd-2.1.11-5.1.fc17.XSCE.i686.rpm) which had 'fc17' as 
part of their names.  Since I started with 13.1.0 (build 36) which is 
'fc18', I was surprised at what had been saved in the yum cache.

The appropriate line in /etc/yum.repos.d/xsce-release.repo is:
