Well, noone volunteered to maintain it?
I sort of needed it for EPEL until a couple of months ago so I kept it
alive until recently where another volunteer picked it up.
If you need it outside of EPEL free to re-add it I guess? The EPEL
package should work fine with Fedora and I think update to 1.99 will be
just a minimal effort. I'll review it for you if you file a review
Be grateful to see that it's still alive in EPEL channel, with an
elder version though. I just wandered in the VZ systems and then found
yaws is no longer available for Fedora users, that'd be unhandy for
I will submit review requests later as I'm still out of time.
