For what it's worth, I think this change broke GNOME Boxes build:
DEBUG util.py:257: Error: Package: libvirt-client-0.9.13-1.fc18.i686 (build)
DEBUG util.py:257: Requires: nc
and I indeed get:
$ repoquery --releasever=rawhide --whatprovides nc
No package provides nc
# So remote clients can access libvirt over SSH tunnel
# (client invokes 'nc' against the UNIX socket on the server)
That was just a temporary issue (no nmap-6.01-2+ builds in the
repository while nc was dead). gnome-boxes builds fine now
(since July 20).
