Yes, I discovered that last night after mentioning on #fedora-devel that I was
working on the package.  I will work on making review comments on the package,
as well as lv2-c++-tools, which mine depends on.  I have to say it feels a
little weird, as someone new to the process, to be evaluating the experienced
packagers' work.  But I guess the process is the process.

What is done with those packages?  Obviously for Fedora they have the mp3
support removed.  Does rpmfusion just have to deal with it and increase the
epoch or something?  Does Fedora just not worry about it?

Thanks for the link.  I don't think I had seen that one anywhere in reading
about the packaging process.
