I just noticed I hadn't actually done this yet. I've retired it for
F-14/rawhide; it can remain in F-13, although it's unlikely to see any
useful updates there.
I've retired hwbrowser in Rawhide/F-13 as well, it doesn't make sense to
keep it around as it can't handle much of the the new hardware, i.e.
anything kudzu doesn't know.
