Okay. I've made the netcf-0.2.2 upstream release that has the specfile
changes, updated both rawhide and F18 packages, made a build for both
and verified that they did use libnl3 rather than libnl1, and requested

day or twice a day).

I'm also not sure if a buildroot override is still necessary once a
