Most of those are longstanding (broken for more than a month), with two

1) gdesklet-SlideShow and gdesklets-citation depend on gdesklets which
appears to have been retired recently;

2) juffed was broken by .
Interestingly enough the update passed the Taskatron depcheck test
there, even though it created a new broken dependency in the repo.

My gut feeling is to retire the broken packages in Rawhide as well, but
it's ultimately up to FESCo to decide what to do.
