This is a known problem with Read at the moment. I fixed the package
the other day and its filtering through the updates-testing. There's a
number of fairly large number of issues with Fedora 14 at the moment
due to the new systemd and python 2.7 not to mention some quite big
gnome related changes. We're preparing the SoaS 4 release based on
this as well so the SoaS team are aware of a number of issues and
we're working as quickly as possible to fix them (but the 3 people in
the team are also very busy with other life related things as well)
and this will benefit this release as well because both teams can work
towards the same goal.
