Thanks for the heads-up.
Looks like upstream completely vanished. gnome-ppp hasn't been maintained
actively for more than a year now, so I think I'm going to orphan this package.
Reply from upstream:
"I have discontinued further development of gnome-ppp. The page vanished 'cause
I have no hosting for it any more. Since there is still community surrounding
gnome-ppp, I haven't bothered to setup new web page for it."
If nobody objects I'm going to orphan this package in a week.
Since the upstream has disappeared wouldn't it make more sense to remove the URL
field from the spec file?
No sure if this is allowed by Fedora guidelines. I think I'm going to orphan

Christoph has this package been actually orphaned?
Yes, the package is orphaned now. Closing this bug CANTFIX.
Do orphaned packages get removed from the repository or not? Why is gnome-ppp
still present in rawhide?
I guess because i orphaned it 3 hours ago.
