Description: A stack-based programming language
1) Factor bootstraps against itself using a premade 'image'.
I have a FPC ticket open for an exemption here: https://fedorahosted.org/fpc/ticket/155 but was told to file the review request anyway.
2) 'factor', the name, conflicts with a Coreutils tool of the same name. Because of this, the binary gets installed as 'factor-vm'

I am triaging old review tickets. I apologize that it has been so long since
anyone looked at this ticket, but there are more packages submitted now than
the pool of reviewers can handle, and some tickets fall through the cracks.
In order to keep the queue manageable, we need to occasionally find tickets
which are not reviewable so as to not waste what reviewer time is available.
Accordingly, I'm pinging this ticket and setting NEEDINFO. If you are still
interested in having your package reviewed, please do the following:
* Make sure your package still reflects the current status of its upstream.
* Check that your package still builds on current Fedora releases.
* Audit your package versus the current status of the packaging guidelines,
current rpmlint and current fedora-review tools.
And, finally, reply, making sure that the NEEDINFO flag gets cleared so that
this ticket reappears in the review queue. I can't promise a review if you
reply, but by closing out the stale tickets we can devote extra attention to
the ones which aren't stale.
Closing wontfix for now.
