Seems that snake requires yum but yum is not uses anywhere in the code.
Please remove the require and rebuild package for F22 and rawhide.

Comment 2 Jaroslav Mracek 2016-03-02 12:08:23 UTC
Please could you provide a status of bug solving or future plans?

Comment 3 Will Woods 2016-03-02 19:47:58 UTC
Sorry, but snake is abandoned / unmaintained. I didn't even know it was still in Fedora, actually.

If anyone *is* still using it, you have my blessing to fork it and maintain it yourself, but I have no plans (or time) to work on it.
