Depends on how long you expect before upstream will have a fix in
place.  Right now the package just fails to rebuild.  That's not a
problem for most end users.  However, rel-eng is investigating doing a
mass rebuild for F12.  If at the point that's ready to go, the package
still doesn't build, yes, disabling that extension would be

I don't think it's a "high percentage".  There may be a few false
positives, for which I'm sorry.  But most are actual problems, either
with the package noted, or with a dependency.  The e2fsprogs/uuid
split caught several apps.

One difference between the Fedora buildsystem and mine is the
environment running on the builders. While Fedora's builders run
essentially RHEL5 plus specific fixes (e.g. newer RPM), mine are
running Fedora 11.  I strongly believe that Fedora needs to be capable
of "self-hosting".  But besides that, it's using mock, and a rawhide
tree as of a given day as the buildroot.

I'm re-running the failed builds right now, and I'll dig into those
that succeed now, when they failed before.
