Should pyexiv4 be retired? It's dead upstream since ~2012 and upstream recommends GExiv2 instead.
Stuff that needs pyexiv2:
$ dnf repoquery --whatrequires pyexiv2 --releasever=rawhide
jbrout is switching to py3 (and to Gobject https://gitlab.com/jbrout/jbrout/merge_requests/7), rapid-photo-downloader package is horribly outdated (https://launchpad.net/rapid/pyqt).
Where can I download Pony's source code - I still don't know. Looks like abandonware to me.
your package has not been built successfully in f30. Action is required from you.
If you can fix your package to build, perform a build in koji, and either create
an update in bodhi, or close this bug without creating an update, if updating is
not appropriate . If you are working on a fix, set the status to ASSIGNED to
acknowledge this. Following the latest policy for such packages , your package
can be orphaned if this bug remains in NEW state more than 8 weeks.

patch to build on f30
quick&dirty patch to get pyexiv2 to build on f30.
Built in rawhide. Let's close this. Ideally the package would be retired, but as long as there are dependencies, it's less disruptive to keep it in zombie state.
