And the reason is? IIRC there were some questions about the used sword licensing during the F10 development cycle. Is that the reason? If I (as a maintainer) request the removal of the package from Fedora I need stronger reason than just a bugzilla request.

Hi Martin, I didn't think it required me stating it since you know as well as I do the history of that image. It was confirm those wallpapers use copyrighted images we cannot ship, I am quite surprised the package was not pulled long ago. It has to be removed.

Hi Mo,
it's always better to state it for reference for other people. I wasn't myself sure if you requested the removal because of the usage of legally problematic source material or something else. I've removed the package from cvs and requested the removal from Fedora package collection. Anyway, thanks for bringing this up.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

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.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2010-06-28 13:44:08 UTC
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Comment 6 Martin Sourada 2010-06-28 14:03:08 UTC
Actually, unless I missed some step during the removal, this should have been closed already as fixed... I'm only not sure what's the correct resolution here though... The one that seems closest to the actual resolution of this is "current release".
