- Fedora packages must be buildable (An FTBFS alone is a violation
- fc12/13 were using different CFLAGS, paths and rpm. It's very
these packages are vulnerable and unusable.
- Fedora packages must carry the current release %dist.
That said, packages which FTBFS since F12 should be removed and
we enter in loop , you are right , but Mosaic was an example how to
know if works (rpm knows :) , Mosaic is not in RPMFusion anymore but
still works, and it is exception , Mosaic is one of the first browsers
