You've missed both geoclue and tangogps off that list.
geoclue dropped support for gpsd in F-13 and later so its not really an issue.
What of the dependencies have an upstream with a port to the new
version of gpsd. If none of them do I think its a little pointless
updating just for the sake of it if all dependant packages break. It
the majority of them do support the new api then its more worthwhile.
I presume this would be just for F-14/rawhide.
