Yes, it's still broken. Same fix as for F19 needs to be applied.
Thank you for heads-up. The same fix was applied in F20, but unfortunately the bodhi update system seems to have difficulties with preparing update from this F20 build. As a workaround solution you can use koji build from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=472656 .
