I didn't say all of them had been fixed. ;-)

Yes, there were still some, and/or some had crept (back) in, when
Fedora22 was released.

I think we're still finding some more. Not all of the developers are
using Fedora 22 yet. I know a few that are still on Fedora 19!

Niels and I had a brief chat a while back about adding a Fedora 22 VM to
Jenkins to catch these. I don't think anything ever happened though.
