Comment 1 Miloslav Trmač 2014-03-15 06:07:01 EDT
Yes, and with non-trivial modifications.

Honestly all of 4Suite-XML should be dropped, upstream has been dead for years.  But there are still two users in the distribution...
Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2014-03-15 06:46:27 EDT
There are standard procedures what should be done in situations like this:

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
