Below are the of packages which have outstanding FTBFS bugs from
earlier Fedora releases.  I've split them up by their 'dist' tag which
shows when they were last successfully built.

I recommend and propose to FESCo that all non-building packages with
Fedora 12 and 13 dist tags be considered for dropping prior to
branching Fedora 16.

Since Fedora 14:
agave-0.4.7-1.fc14 [u'631411 NEW'] (build/make) bonii
gnusim8085-1.3.6-1.fc14 [u'631067 NEW'] (build/make) sherry151,chitlesh
kazehakase-0.5.8-9.svn3873_trunk.fc14 [u'631305 NEW'] (build/make) mtasaka
link-grammar-4.6.7-3.fc14 [u'599978 NEW'] (build/make) uwog
rubygem-rcov-0.9.8-1.fc14 [u'631350 NEW'] (build/make) mmorsi
tilda-0.9.6-4.fc14 [u'631372 NEW'] (build/make) laxathom
Jiri Skala in that bug propose fix. If some help needed I also interesting to help maintain tilda.

It doesn't change the fact that the maintainer still hasn't applied the bugfix and closed the ticket. I would presume initially that the packages would be orphaned and then go through the same process as the orphaned packages allowing others to pick up the maintenance of them just like the rest of the ophans. I'm quite sick of fixing other people's FTBFS. Between my work on the ARM secondary Arch and the other stuff I've fixed something like 6+ FTBFS which have been like that since F-12/13 in the last couple weeks.
