The fix is in F21 krb5 packages as of -11, but was never submitted as Bodhi update.  Any specific reason why?

No reason. I did my job and issued the $ fedpkg update # (I remember the issue because I had to fight fedpkg update password-wise and had to ask and I double-checked it against my worklogs) - see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1188869#c8 ... I have no clue why the update mechanism wasn't triggered then... ,-/

Comment 4 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2015-09-01 21:35:47 UTC
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 5 Robbie Harwood 2015-09-09 20:56:38 UTC
It looks to me like bodhi updates have since been issued.  Please reopen if there is still a problem.  Thanks!
