No, I saw it, but the bureaucracy (and suggested discussion) is beyond
my time. This is the 2nd time in one week that a tool is missing in
the buildroots, and it hasn't gone unnoticed by FESCo. The original
definition of the minimal buildroot is void.

Follow from

  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Exceptions

to

  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/FullExceptionList

and notice

  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/FullExceptionList?action=diff&rev2=14&rev1=13

The Exceptions list is and the explanations at the top of the
FullExceptionList page are void now, too.
