I have just updated libuv in F22 and rawhide to the 1.x series (1.4.0
to be exact) which introduces a proper soname upstream that is bumped
from the previous Fedora package.

libuv currently only has two dependencies in Fedora.  One dependent,
moarvm, has already been rebuilt.  The other, nodejs, will use the
newly introduced compat-libuv010 package for the life of the Fedora 22
release.  It will be updated to the new 0.12 release for F23, which
can use the new libuv.  This compat package will then be retired.

No new packages in Fedora should depend on compat-libuv010.  Please
instead use the main libuv package, as many changes released in the
v1.x series were focused on making the library more useful to
consumers besides nodejs.
