This is brown paperbag release for a single regression in 4.16.1, which 
causes rpmbuild to crash if the hostname is not resolvable. Yup, doesn't 
seem like anything to do with rpm, but this actually happens quite a bit 
in chroot and container setups used to build.

Really annoying, but this being 2020, could it have ended any other way?

Go get it at
