I expected that. Then this will be broken until a synaptics for ppc64
shows up (if that happens) in Fedora 7 updates. That's life.

BTW, why wasn't this PPC64 problem found earlier? Wasn't repoclosure run
for ppc64? Do we expect that to be a problem that only happens due to
the new ppc64 tree or is there anything we should do to prevent similar
stuff in the future?

Well, I could do that for devel, then the ppc64 version would vanish.
But rebuilding something just to get rid of something never should have
been build sounds crazy when those with access to the repo can do a
simple "rm foo".

It's devel in any case; waiting some days might be the best for now.
