The iozone package was removed from Fedora eighteen months ago because
its license was clarified to be non-free. Here is the message included
when the package was removed from Fedora:
Upstream license does not give permission to modify. I spoke with
upstream, and they considered fixing the license to give permission to
modify with loss of trademark (e.g. firefox scenario), but they decided
If upstream fixes their license to give permission to modify in such a
way that it would be considered free, we can reactivate this package.

Unfortunately due to confusion or oversight, the package was not removed
from EPEL at that time. I have removed the EPEL branches from CVS and
requested that the package be removed from the repository.
