(Re-)orphaning raptor (1)

I had picked up raptor 5 days ago:
but then I realized that this is raptor version 1, whereas Redland (and thus 
Soprano and thus Nepomuk and thus KDE) have already moved on to raptor2 since 
Fedora 16:
The packages ardour, liblrdf and sonic-visualiser have also switched to 
raptor2, and liblicense has been dropped, leaving only flickcurl and 
(lib)rawstudio to depend on the old raptor 1. This means my personal interest 
in raptor 1 is basically zero.

In addition, it looks like raptor 1 has at least 2 open security issues:
so it would take some actual time investment for me to maintain, which, given 
my aforementioned lack of interest in the legacy version of raptor, I would 
rather leave somebody else to worry about.

Therefore, I have rereleased ownership of raptor. Maintainer(s) of flickurl and 
rawstudio (CCed), please either pick up raptor, or port your package(s) to 
raptor2, or both.
