If Eric didn't a) orphan the package in the first place, or b) remove the
package from the repository... why are you saying he broke it? All he did
was say that these were orphaned packages which had other problems attached
to them.

In the future, please follow this process instead:

1) Find out who removed the package.
2) Find out why they removed the package.
3) If the package was removed because it was orphaned, unmaintained, or not
responding to CVE's find a packager who can do so that the package can go
back into EPEL or Fedora.
