Description of problem:

libvpx 1.5.0 has been released see: https://groups.google.com/a/webmproject.org/forum/#!topic/codec-devel/0rjNpFerYs8

The break in ABI is reflected by a bump of the soname version. This calls for either a parallel package (libvpx15, or libvpx14 and libvpx), or introduction into the new Fedora release. (But I'm not totally aware of the Fedora update rules on this - just saying.)

I don't mind doing this in rawhide, but I'm going to have to be convinced to do this for any other branches.

libvpx-1.5.0 is now in rawhide. All dependencies that repoquery found have been rebuilt:
