This update is actually kinda against the updates policy. Already after updates-testing activation we say "Maintainers SHOULD: Avoid ABI/API changes where possible. If unavoidable, use a side-tag to rebuild packages." OK, that's fairly weak and in practice API changes after u-t activation happen a lot. However, this update was submitted during Final freeze, and it doesn't fix a blocker or FE bug, so it cannot go stable till after release, and at that point the "Stable Releases" section applies, which says:

"ABI changes in general are very strongly discouraged, they force larger update sets on users and they make life difficult for third-party packagers."

You're really not supposed to change ABI in stable releases for no reason other than "there's a new version available".

@thunderbirdtr 's error kinda implies that something requires kf5-kimageformats-5.99.0-2.fc37 and cannot be satisfied by kf5-kimageformats-5.99.0-4.fc37 , which would imply that whatever that thing is needs to be rebuilt and pulled into this update. We'd have to look at any difference in the provides: of those two builds, and what other packages depend on those provides:, to figure it out...

This update has been unpushed.

I did a libavif0.10 compat package to help get this one over the finish line and submitted it all again as https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2022-c8eab6e6f1
