Where is the fedora25 rpm for wv?

On Fedora 25 wv is segfaulting on a couple of pdf's. I've run wv on Fedora 24 on the same files without a problem. In my search for the reason I found it was the exact same rpm-package on the Fedora 25 machine: wv-1.2.9-13.fc24.x86_64. Being a fedora 25 installation I expected the name to end in fc25.x86_64.

It is normal to have some f24 packages in the f25 repo, wv was never rebuilt for f25.

I see. But libxml2 (one of the dependencies) was rebuilt for f25. Could that be a source of problems?
