Matthias tends to not have a lot of time for Fedora now a days, so I usually take care of frozen-bubble. I see you've just attached a patch for PIE usage to the iscsi-initiator-utils bug (bug 955167), if you can provide a patch for frozen-bubble too, that would be great. Just attach it here and I'll take care of the rest.

Thanks Hans, for handling this.
I would recommend getting my patch reviewed before pushing it.
