Apparently I am listed as maintainer for the epel branch of this package, but none of my packages depends on this and I have no references in my email archive, so I have no idea when or why this happened.

What should I do now? Applying the patch already in the f24 branch should be easy but again, I don not know what this package does nor what uses it, so I'd rather avoid touching it.

I think I got added to this project by mistake. Resetting the ownership
