Is there any indication of a timeframe for it to become FIPS compliant?  If
we are talking weeks, rather than years...

No, it doesn't work in FIPS mode yet. If you open a support case with
Red Hat your case can be added to

While most, if not all, of the individual components can run in FIPS
mode there are a lot of moving parts to coordinate to ensure they comply
with the FIPS Security Policy and to handle some corner cases in the
management framework.
