Nit-pick: With some unrelated changes in fedora 31 and 30, builds from this fedora 32 update now have a lower NVR than the builds from fedora 31 or 30.

When doing such "unrelated fixes" in older branches, it's recommended to append .1 to the Release (like 1%{?dist}.1, and then incrementing that postfix number) instead of incrementing the Release like normal. This preserves a correct upgrade path within and across releases.

Hm, I thought we didn't care about upgrade path anymore because dist-upgrade downgrades everything automatically... is that wrong?

I can remember to do this in the future, though.

User Icon catanzaro commented & provided feedback 2 years ago

I have another change to make anyway, so I'll call it -7 to fix the upgrade path.

User Icon decathorpe commented & provided feedback 2 years ago

Well, it's mostly true that "upgrade path" doesn't matter anymore (you're right that dist-upgrades do distro-sync - and downgrade - now by default).

In this case, this turned out to not be a problem, but in other cases, I found updates that were missing from f32 entirely (which is a problem, since package downgrades aren't exactly supported, and it's not good for f32 to be missing bugfixes and security updates).

But thanks for fixing it anyway :)

This update has been obsoleted by webkit2gtk3-2.28.0-7.fc32.
