While I'm sorry to see them go, I think it's the best course of
action. They've been broken for a long time, and I think that having
broken packages is considerably worse than having no packages. If
someone were committed to maintaining them, they've been MIA for months.
I vote to pull them from Fedora, but to maybe think as we go forward
about maybe continuing to package RPMs, just not in Fedora. The
pure-Ruby approach / dev-tools approach is great for developers, but
I'm not sure how well it will work for people wanting to run Aeolus
Yeah -- not only that, the list of conductor deps that are not in fedora
has grown as well (tim, ldap_fluff, (shortly) alberich, etc.), so
getting the packages working wouldn't just be a matter of fixing them,
but also a matter of getting new dependencies into fedora at the same time.
