Debian treats FTBFS bugs as release-critical.  They either have to be
fixed, or the package gets removed from the release.  However, this is
not an automated process.

I wonder if something similar could work for Fedora: The package would
remain available in rawhide, but would be removed from the release
composes.

In the end, someone has to fix the packages eventually, and the package
maintainers are probably best qualified to deal with that.  If they lack
the resources for that, it points to a much more significant problem
that needs solving separately, I think.

Thanks,
Florian
