state of fedora-review?

Hi,

I am wondering about the state of the "fedora-review" package. It seems to be
a pretty important package to ensure new stuff adhers to the latest Fedora
packaging policy.

When I ran "fedora-review" I noticed that it was clearly not updated for some
time: There where outdated points about bundled libraries (nowadays without
special FPC exception), a warning about an unnecessary "gcc" build requirement
and many outdated links.

Well, it turns out fedora-review fails to build from source since July 2018
[3] (last successful koji build was in March 2018).

shipping patches from Debian in Fedora package: licensing

A while ago I noticed that a Debian package has some useful patches for some
package and some of these patches are required to update the Fedora package.
