Do you have any idea when
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=502401 is going to be
fixed?  I'm reluctant to convert any more of my subpackages to noarch
while that bug persists, given what happens when people try to install
the noarch subpackages that I maintain (gcl-emacs and gcl-xemacs).

Sure, I could make those subpackages Obsolete their former selves, but
that won't help me with other people's noarch subpackages.  I've
already had to upgrade several of those by hand due to this bug on my
shiny new F-11 install.
