OK, and what happens if the patches turn out to be non-trivial
and slow in being produced? I really think this kind of change should
be done first using scratch builds of all dependent packages
(or using a side tag if there are more than a handful of dependent
packages). This way maintainers have time to respond in case
upstream work is needed, and we don't get uninstallable
packages in rawhide.

Recent gdal update was similar. Some dependent packages require porting
to the new APIs, nobody knows when that will happen.

Rebuilt kf5-ktexteditor, kate, gedit-plugins.
rubygem-rugged from git should work. I'm waiting for a build to finish.

pygit2 *should* already work. Not sure what is wrong.

subsurface fails: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=10552496
subsurface 4.4.2 is out, but the changelog indicates nothing

Above was all for rawhide. For F23, if it turns out that it is not
possible to rebuild everything quickly, the change should be reverted
