I retired this package on f21, rawhide, el5, and el6. f19 and f20 gave me the following errors though:
> Could not retire package: You are not allowed to retire the package: drupal6-freelinking on branch f19.
> ERROR:rpkg:Could not retire package: You are not allowed to retire the package: drupal6-freelinking on branch f19.

I am listed in pkgdb as the main contact, an admin, a committer, and a watcher of this package. Do I need to submit a ticket to get this pkg retired on f19 and f20 or can you do it?
Adding Eric to Cc. Eric, can you please help with the above?
Sorry for the delay. I'm look at this now.
The word from Release Engineering is that once the package has been shipped it cannot be pulled back. Your current choices are:
1. Ship a fix.
2. Ship an updated package that removes the executable and replaces all the pieces with a README.
3. Orphan the package.
4. Blog about it/otherwise get the word out that this package is bad.
Obviously, these are not mutually exclusive. You may select to do a bunch of these. I wish I had a better option.
What ever happened with this update? If this package won't be updated I'd highly recommend you orphan it now before the release of F21.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Per comment #2, I retired this package on f21, rawhide, el5, and el6.
I just orphaned f19 and f20.
