Do not wait. If package is missing in next version of Fedora it was either:

1) removed without replacement. In this case nothing should require it. So it is bug.

2) it was replaced by another package, which forgot to specify correct Provides/Obsoletes. And it is bug as well.

So in both cases please file Bugzilla report. However fedup is innocent in this case. If you are unsure which package is
the cause, choose the package which requires missing dependency and I'm sure the maintainer will reassign it to correct
Example of such report is here:

It is good habit to do "dry upgrade" to Beta or Alpha release and report the issues, so maintainers have time to fix it
before final release. I described it here:
