Re: Retiring Opyum

Well, the package can't be removed from the Fedora 9 Everything repository, 
that repository isn't allowed to change (because changing it would cause 
mirroring chaos).

It can be blocked from Rawhide though, ask rel-eng for that.

The problem there is that gnome-packagekit has:
Provides:  pirut = 1.3.30-3
without actually providing the Python modules pirut used to provide. So there's 
no broken dependency, Opyum just fails at runtime (and is thus completely 
useless), but the dependency checkers won't catch it.
