Ok, no problem with obsoleting a Fedora package with a TeX Live
variant if you, as a package maintainer of it, wish to. I will add
Obsoletes for xdvipdfmx.

I'm presenting a complete list of packages shipped in TeX Live to
discuss another possible obsoletions:

dvipdfm
dvipdfmx
getafm
lcdftypetools
psutils
t1utils
xdvi
dvipng
xdvipdfmx

If you think that also some of these packages in Fedora should be
obsoleted, please let me know and I will do so in the next TL repo
update.

Thanks,
Jindrich
