Older version of pdns provides sub-packages backend-geo and backend-lmdb. These sub-packages were removed in this update but because they were not obsoleted, update will fail on systems with those installed. Suggested fix:
Obsoletes: pdns-backend-geo < 4.0.6-1
Obsoletes: pdns-backend-lmdb < 4.0.6-1
Bodhi is disabling automatic push to stable due to negative karma. The maintainer may push manually if they determine that the issue is not severe.

Why was this major release update pushed to EPEL 7 and marked as security update?
Upgrading from PDNS 3.4.11-4.el7.x86_64 to 4.0.6-2.el7.x86_64 is more then just a security update. This broke our entire PDNS cluster this morning cause config parameters have changed and PDNS wasn't starting anymore. Also the Web API has changed.
We're running yum-cron to apply security patches automatically but this showed us to remove it from all systems. I really appreciate your work guys but this wasn't really cautious.
Thanks for your feedback. It is a security update for https://doc.powerdns.com/authoritative/security-advisories/powerdns-advisory-2018-03.html (CVE-2018-10851).
Please let me explain a few things: RHEL7 will be supported until June 30, 2024. We can't support PowerDNS 3.4.x until 2024, because PowerDNS 3.4.x is now EOL (End of Life). Please check the End of life statement from upstream developer: https://doc.powerdns.com/authoritative/appendices/EOL.html
That's the reason why we must upgrade to PowerDNS 4.x. Since there is no SQL schema change between 3.4.x and 4.0.x the upgrade should work properly in most situations with mysql or psql backend. I am sorry that you had problems. Please note: The API was considered experimental in all 3.x releases.
