it just works poor

* https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1185278
   never got fixed in F20 but is fixed in Fedora 21
* https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1185277 open for months

and in general a bunch of git commits don't replace a upstream changelog 
of a minor release where as user you never have any idea what your 
current installed package really is

with a 220.1 and a usptream download of 220.1 containing a changelog 
things are entirely different (besides that the version numbers for a 
project existing just a few years are strange to say it nicely)
