Upstream has a significantly newer version (2.12) available than what is in Fedora: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/magit/magit/master/Documentation/RelNotes/2.12.0.txt
It's likely going to be harder making this old version work with newer emacs going forward, so it's a good idea to update. Thanks!

version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

*Yikes.* Please orphan this package if you're not going to maintain it.
Bad bot, no botsnack.
Upstream is at 2.90.1. Version 1.2.2 has been obsolete for more than five years. Shipping such an old version is worse than not shipping anything, in my opinion. Please update, orphan or retire this package.
This package has changed maintainer in the Fedora.
Reassigning to the new maintainer of this component.
magit 2.4.1 has just landed Fedora Rawhide.
That's the latest magit version that I was able to package using current packages on Fedora.
I'm starting to package the other requirements so that Fedora can get magit 2.90.1.
A newer emacs-magit just landed on Fedora Rawhide for Fedora 34.
Tests and comments are welcome!
