Unfortunately no. The same is true for gmime and lcms. I'm very sorry
about this, but for obvious reasons we couldn't talk about this openly
until all the decision were made, and then things turned into a horrible
rush as I had to get this stuff into the tree before test2 got frozen.

So, as of today the sqlite2, gmime and lcms packages that were in Fedora
Extras has been moved into Core, because they were dependencies for
beagle and f-spot. 

This was badly handled from my side, but the circumstances were unusual.
How do we progress from here though. Who are the current maintainers of
these extras packages? Is there an easy way to look that up?
