Any failure's a candidate for a bug report if it's a bug in a Fedora
package. =)

As far as the release criteria go, we're actually probably going to dump
that Xen criterion, as we don't actually remember why it's there in the
first place. It was added at Jesse Keating's request back in 2009, but
he can't remember why and isn't aware of any current reason why Xen
client functionality should be vital for Fedora. We suspect that, back
then, we were running some bit of infra or the build system on Xen and
hence needed it to be working.

There may be a tracking bug, I'm not could always set one up
though, it doesn't really need any special privileges.
