This is a tracking bug for Change: ACPICA Tools Update
For more details, see: http://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/AcpicaTools
For developers working with the ACPI subsystem, there are tools available from the reference implementation at http://www.acpica.org. These tools have been restructured over time and the current Fedora packages as a result contain either outdated versions or do not make available a complete set of tools. We propose an acpica-tools package that replaces both the existing iasl package and the the existing pmtools package in order to make all current tools available, and make it more straightforward in the future to keep them up-to-date.

Package has been uploaded into git and builds done for all architectures for f20.

acpica-tools obsoletes pmtools, but it appears it should also obsolete iasl:
Transaction check error:
file /usr/bin/iasl from install of acpica-tools-20130823-2.fc19.x86_64 conflicts with file from package iasl-20120913-7.fc19.x86_64
file /usr/share/man/man1/iasl.1.gz from install of acpica-tools-20130823-2.fc19.x86_64 conflicts with file from package iasl-20120913-7.fc19.x86_64
Erasing iasl and installing acpica-tools works.

Thanks, Pete. The changes look fine to me.
