I do what I can do at http://spinner.fedoraunity.org/revisor/

I've warned the creators/maintainers about the Beta freeze but 
apparently they either can't test/fix or they won't test/fix.

This is the second time Release Engineering is handed off garbage and 
I'm not sure what we as a Spin SIG can do about it other then trying to 
make the testing an automagic process as far as the composing is concerned.

Otherwise, I assume this is the only other option, we need to tell the 
creators/maintainers that as soon as you fail to compose a spin, it's 

Kind regards,
