Right.  The ddrescue package that was brought over from fedora.us is
really dd_rescue:

  http://www.garloff.de/kurt/linux/ddrescue/

It still lives in the ddrescue directory in CVS
(http://cvs.fedora.redhat.com/viewcvs/rpms/ddrescue/?root=extras), but
the spec is now named dd_rescue.spec, and the generated package is
named dd_rescue.

There's also GNU ddrescue:

  http://www.gnu.org/software/ddrescue/ddrescue.html

Obviously it is inspired by dd_rescue (and probably dd_rhelp, which
probably should be a separate package, and not rolled into the current
Extras dd_rescue package), and while I think dd_rescue is the better
tool for the most part, I'd like to see both in Fedora.
Unfortunately, the current mess with the CVS directory names and the
broken Obsoletes in dd_rescue.spec mean someone has to do some work
before that can happen...
