I just had a look at the .spec file under  <http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/gitweb/?p=scummvm.git>, and indeed, they do that. Yuck! We should definitely file a bug report with them about that. 

Also, on <<https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/acls/name/scummvm>> they are using a heavily outdated description for ScummVM, calling it ALPHA software -- the text seems to be based on a version of the README which was last used in the 0.4.x release. Ouch.

The .spec description is also outdated, it still refers to ScummVM as beta (a mistake we admittedly also made in 1.0.x and 1.1.x, but fixed in 1.2.x).

Could somebody who actually uses Fedora or at least knows a bit about it (e.g. how one reports bugs properly :) file a report on this (and maybe send the URL, so that we can track it / chime in if necessary)?
