Orphaning or Retiring SOAPpy

I am wondering if someone is interested in picking up the maintainance of SOAPpy
in Fedora.

The upstream we were following [1] is dead for a while. There are some forks
that seems to be moving forward but one would have to check which fork to go
with [2, 3, 4, ...].
In addition SOAPpy has currently two CVE bugs opened (#1094619, #1094620), for
which I do not know if any of the new upstreams has a fix or not.

Finally depend on SOAPpy:
$ repoquery --whatrequires SOAPpy

Upstream of python-twisted suggested to drop SOAPpy as a dependency (and
possibly drop the module as well) [5], so only pytrainer might be problematic.

So if anyone is willing to maintain this package properly I will happily give it
a new home, otherwise I will orphan it and let it be retire with the F21
