releng doesn't key off of a devel/ branch alone.  The package was
somehow added to a Fedora collection in Koji, and thus it showed up as a
valid package when I queried Koji for all the packages buildable in
dist-f11.  The fact that it was added to a Fedora collection in
Koji /plus/ it had a real devel/ branch in CVS led to it being built.
At 7000+ srpms there is no way I could evaluate each and every one for
validity before submitting it for a rebuild.
