There are not much reverse dependencies:

The reason that I left it there is that bwm-ng is not usable if I update this to 0.91.
Some APIs have been rewritten. I need to port the bwm-ng or they will be retired. But there are users still so I can't do that.
I'm seeking time to fix the package, it's a bit tough now.

the patch is merge in upstream repository at https://github.com/vgropp/bwm-ng
Another option would be to remove libstatgrab dependency since its only optional for bwm-ng (configure --without-libstatgrab)

Can you create a scratch build of 0.91 for f23 or devel?
I'll then test the bwm-ng patch against this and if it works the upgrade can proceed for devel.
Seemed the fix is so simple ;-) Can't believe that.
I will scratch a build when I have time, don't worry.

Please do not upload sources to the git, I've uploaded on Tuesday.
I'm cleaning up the spec now, since the way it got packaged is a bit odd.
Also upstream of it is awkward, in order to support oldschool platforms they still wrongly handle the pkgconfig file.

Not my fault, they need to rebuild the packages. lxqt panel supports libstatgrab 0.90+.
Anyways, you can not push to stable currently cause of Beta Freeze.

Did you mean f23? Well it's already been cancelled according to negative karma threshold.
I planned to push the update to f23 since some people need that, but fine with current state because it doesn't really matter too much.
It is YOUR responsibility to:
* announce soname bumps in your packages AND
* ensure dependent packages get rebuilt in a timely manner.
For stable releases (currently F21 and F22) and branched prereleases (currently F23), soname bumps:
* are discouraged by the packaging guidelines and should only be done if there is a good reason, which so far you failed to provide (please clarify "some people need that"),
* MUST be pushed as grouped updates containing both the library and rebuilds of ALL dependent packages (using a buildroot override) in one and the same update group.
You MUST NEVER push a soname bump of a library as a standalone update in Bodhi (unless nothing in Fedora depends on it, of course).
