nss 3.33.0 requires nspr >= 4.17.0 , but that package is not in this update; it is in a different update - https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2017-0b189f2107 . That is a violation of the update policy:

"When one updated package requires another (or more than one other), the packages should be submitted together as a single update."


There is a potential for significant breakage here, because if you try to apply this update without the nspr update, dnf will skip most of the nss packages due to dependency issues, but will happily update nss-softokn-freebl ; after this update, things that depend on nss (which is lots of important things!) fail to work. So if this update got pushed stable without the nspr update, we could break many many systems. This is why interdependent packages should always go in the same update.

Please either unpush both updates, bump and rebuild the packages, and submit a new update (for both F26 and F27) with both packages in it, or be very careful in ensuring the nss and nspr updates are submtited to stable at the same time. And in future, please create combined updates. Thanks.
