Because the Fedora maintainer for the package was AWOL and didn't bother
retiring it. It will be retired now if nobody picks it up.
Unluckily this information is not really available in the PackageDB, but
who was this maintainer? According to the RPM changelog, the last
non-rebuild change is from Rex Dieter and the package is only orphaned
for devel and F12, but not for F11, where Aurelien Bompard is the
maintainer. And he also owns some other packages.
