I guess there is a circle dependency here.
You need to review libmodman and verify the libproxy can build with
your own build in mock (as we don't support chain build in scratch
mode for koji). That will be the usability test for libmodman's
Then libproxy can be tested and updated in rawhide.

Remember that since there is an ABI change from F-13's libproxy, and
that this library is in the cirtical path, there is no plan to update
it in F-13...

You can go ahead with libmodman review, and nathaniel sponsorship...
