True. It breaks my installations too often (and when I retry fedup, it
gives a 404 not found error, and I always forget the special invocation
or Wiki pages that may make it work).

But I could have pointed repoquery at rawhide.

Same author. ;-)

So, just gnupg2 so far, since gnupg2-smime is a subpkg, and npth-devel
belongs to npth (obviously). Okay. One should give it more time and
see whether any issues will come up during the F22 test cycle then.
