It has been pointed out before that wxPython appeared on the fedora.us
FC2Status page, meaning that it was NOT rebuilt for FC2 for some
reason. Nobody cared to look into it when we discussed which old package
directories to remove from CVS prior to the pre-Extras mass rebuild.

Please, everyone, in particular the package owners of these, check
out:

  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/FC3Status

The lists at the bottom ("Copied from FC2Status page" and "Unknown
status") cover packages which have not been rebuilt for some time.
