    Well, it's hard to pinpoint, it's likely that you've had a intermittently failing keyboard and a squeeky chair, and a problem somewhere in between.

    Why dont we unify packages? "de(b)rp(m)" as .DERP and everyone happy?
    I honestly think that the name for the new package format is awesome, I'd contribute code just because of it!

    We could go "derp herp derp derp derp herp derp derp" at all those that will keep using rpm and deb..!

    I thought 6.9 would be the hands free release

    RPM5 (and RPM6), the forks led by Jeff Johnson has been dead for years. He was a hard developer to work with. Everyone moved back to RPM 4.

    As a Fedora user, just wondering, what was the last thing Fedora did except updating a bunch of packages? Update the compiler flags to include frame pointers? Sure, this particular one might have some more internal impact than your usual Gnome update. But I feel like Fedora releases have become nothing more than a regular update of a bunch of software packages.

    Fedora storming forward as always. I'd be tempted to switch if I wasn't so happy with Nixos.

    This is addressed in the proposed change (#Upgrade/compatibility impact). It only affects the spec files that are using the already deprecated syntax "%patchN", which represents a bit over 1000 files (which is not a lot compare to the total amount of spec files), and they'll be updated before the 4.20 release takes place.

    typo

    "declrarative" should be "declarative"
