Glad it was an easy fix :) Another good think about using rpmbuild, it
starts a "clean" build every time :)

I can see that but it would also be trivial to pull those source RPM's
and just update the source files to the version you need. On a side
note I'm also the openCOLLADA maintainer. I keep them pretty up to
date but as openCOLLADA doesn't maintain a stable API/ABI I use
abi-compliance-checker to check for ABI breakages and only update if
there isn't one, however, you can always pull the SRPM from rawhide
since I keep it pretty current and rebuild it for whatever Fedora
release you're on.
