Packages that are considered retired from Fedora Package Collection

  • These are packages, which have been removed from the Fedora repository at some point of time. Sometimes because upstream projects have stopped, sometimes because the packages are considered obsolete in favour of other software that already exists in the repository. Think twice before re-adding them. The previous package maintainers may have had good reason to retire these packages.
  • Eventually, these data may move into a package database.
