I am afraid to add it back in f16, it needs a re-review of the package. See:

After review, you can can request the f16 git branch as usual as per

rawhide normally inherits packages from older Fedora releases. When a
package is retired, this is no longer desired and the package should be
blocked in koji to stop the inheritance and to prevent any new
(accidental) builds.

Blocking the package in koji doesn't happen automatically after retiring
the package in pkgdb. It's something that a koji admin has to do
manually. That's why there are instructions for filing a ticket with the
rel-eng trac at

Apparently the person retiring the package didn't finish the Package End
of Life procedure and didn't have the package blocked in koji, so it's
still getting pulled in to F16 and rawhide composes.

Hope this helps,
