libiptcdata removal broke Rawtherapee

Libiptcdata was removed due to
<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Mass_Python_2_Package_Removal" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Mass_Python_2_Package_Removal">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Mass_Python_2_Package_Removal</a>

Unfortunately, Rawtherapee needs it and is now broken:
<a href="https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=1201565" title="https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=1201565">https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=1201565</a>

I would have expected that only the Python2 subpackage was removed, not
the entire package! Is there any change to get that removal reverted?

That's the usual case. In this package, it FTBFS and the maintainer agreed to
retire it entirely as long as nothing depends on it. I did just that.

I made a mistake, apparently. Sorry about that.

I've used dnf repoquery to check what requires python2-libiptcdata, instead of
checking what requires libiptcdata.

That would be:

* rawtherapee
* tracker-miners
* gstreamer(1)-plugins-bad-free

So apparently, I broke this. My apologies, this was an accident.

Feel free to ping me directly or comment on bugzilla with similar problems, I've
noticed this e-mail on devel, but I might not notice all such e-mails.
