I dunno.  That sounds like a very good reason to me.  Otherwise Fedora
would have to maintain a fork, which really isn't a good plan.  It
isn't the job of a Fedora packager to maintain a fork.

If it's really so important to get this fixed, it needs to be fixed
across all distros.  If there hasn't been a release for three years,
the package needs to be orphaned or someone who cares needs to start
maintaining a fork that can become the new upstream.

Why would upstream's existing sourceforge svn trunk be considered a new fork?
