This is a request to grant a bundling exception for RepSanpper.
RepSanpper review request: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=907585
RepSnapper includes libreprap. Libreprap upstream is dead and RepSnapper developers now maintain their own version. It's stays there as a library just because historic reasons, they have no intent to make this library useful for other projects and no other active projects use it.
Original author of libreprap says here https://github.com/Ralith/libreprap/issues/4#issuecomment-13059313
"...the repsnapper branch is certainly the authoritative one now, though I have no idea how hard they're trying to keep the code reusable by others, which seems like something you'd want in an independently-packaged library."
Developer of RepSnapper says here https://github.com/timschmidt/repsnapper/issues/86#issuecomment-13041490
"...I wouldn't package (libreprap) separately, it's just a part of repsnapper. It should be replaced by something working anyway ..."
