Imho the information should be in the Fedora Package Database, but I do not 
know how it can get in there, e.g. there is only one package listed as 
retired at
and there are also packages listed as orpaned, that are actually retired:
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/packages/name/thinkpad-kmod (this is 
required according to the wiki).

There is also a ticket about this at hosted:

better wait till the information can be fed into the package database.
