This is a request to grant a bundling exception for Rep``Sanpper.

Rep``Sanpper review request: ‚Äčhttps://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 Rep``Snapper 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 ..."''

Is there anything I can do to help this move? Provide any more information? Thanks
