This update breaks CubicSDR on Fedora 31. It probably shouldn't have been pushed to Fedora 31:

https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/fesco/Updates_Policy/#stable-releases

A little late for negative karma to be meaningful. Unfortuantley wsjtx needs the 4.0 pre-release, so the question is who wins? Hopefully a simple rebuild fixes it.

I have contacted the maintainer for CubicSDR about rebuilding the f31 package.

I realize it is too late for this update. But perhaps the issue can be avoided in the future by adhering to Fedora updates policy or at least coordinating rebuilds and updates with all dependent packages. This update breaks other dependent packages:

"The update rate for any given release should drop off over time, approaching zero near release end-of-life; since updates are primarily bugfixes, fewer and fewer should be needed over time."

"Updating inter-dependent packages

When one updated package requires another (or more than one other), the packages should be submitted together as a single update. For instance, if package A depends on packages B and C, and you want to update to a new version of package A which requires new versions of B and C, you must submit a single update containing the updated versions of all three packages. It is a bad idea to submit three separate updates, because if the update for package A is pushed stable before the updates for packages B and C, it will cause dependency problems. There is information on how to submit multi-package updates in the package update HOWTO."

"Package maintainers MUST:

Avoid Major version updates, ABI breakage, or API changes if at all possible.

Avoid changing the user experience if at all possible.

Avoid updates that are trivial or don’t affect any Fedora users.

Package maintainers SHOULD:

Push only major bug fixes and security fixes to the previous stable releases (i.e. the current Fedora N, and the previous Fedora N-1)."

I usually check for dependent packages using repoquery, but somehow missed this one. The maintainer has submitted an update.
