I can't remember exactly, but wasn't that in a separate sub-repo and/or
for a distribution that was not maintained anymore by Red Hat?

I agree -- IMHO audacity in livna should be renamed to audacity-mp3 (or
something else, no better idea atm) and conflict with audacity from
extras. That way people can uninstall audacity from extras and manually
install the version from livna if they want to (maybe it also works with
some obsolete-magic, but I don't think so and did not try).

Michael, could you file a bug in livna's bugzilla? tia
