No, but If you want reaver-wps, I challenge you to create a rpm for it... very easy.!

You didn't say what version of Fedora you're using. Right now, I'm still using Fedora 19.

yum list reaver\*

Error: No matching Packages to list

yum list --releasever=20 reaver\*

Returns the same thing, so it appears that the answer to your question is No.

Why are you still using F19 (just curious)? IMO, F20 is much better and more stable than F19. Also, kernel 3.15 is really fast! No crashes from KDE either (I know you use XFCE, but still ;).

Inertia. My laptop uses F 20, but my desktop's had trouble with the last two upgrades, so I'm a tad reluctant to do it until I have to.

reaver is currently under review:

You will have to download the source tarball and install the software from source. There are many web pages explaining this procedure, such as this.
