Thanks for notifying me.

In the future, it would be very helpful if you could also send these
kind of reports to overseers@sources.redhat.com.  Then any one of a
number of people could potentially deal with the problem.

...of course, it'll probably still be me who deals with the problem but
it's still a nice theory.

I guess everyone should now be less than surprised to find that old
versions of packages will be disappearing RSN.  It would be a help if
people would delete their old packages now and save me the hassle,
