Yes it will. 
The naming convention in Fedora Extras for ladspa plugins is currently
ladspa-NAME-plugins, where NAME is the name of the collection excluding
"plugins" if that is already there. When I get the time to do it the
naming will slowly migrate to that standard. 

There's also a standard for dssi in Extras, I think, but I don't
remember the particulars.
