Well, yes. The master RPM buildfarm served us for about 3 years, and it
died. Then, I switched to a new server, and I had to drop Fedora < 10.
The downside was that the machine belonged to my previous employer, and
now we don't have an active RPM buildfarm...

Actually I have all virtual machines, and it is connected to a new
really powerful machine at home. I just don't have time nowadays to
update some packages. Probably in next minor release round. That day is
also the day that we will start using new URL
