> As explained earlier [1], in order to get the release train back on track, pronto, this is mostly just a collection of backports that distros have actually been running in the meanwhile rather than considering all the commits in master by importance as I'd normally do. Plus a few patches based on the feedback I got here. And some security fixes. Yeah, those. Some of 'em have barely hatched and have little real world exposure, but can't be helped. If we'll need rc3 then we'll have rc3, it's not the end of the world. Just bleeping annoying. But on with the show.

Humm.... Testsuite won't pass....
2 tests are failing because of missing files...
Please apply the attached patch
It fixes:
84: rpmbuild debuginfo dwz                          FAILED (rpmbuild.at:396)
86: rpmbuild implicit suid binary                   FAILED (rpmbuild.at:509)

After that, 2 unexpected failures remain:

 85: rpmbuild debuginfo dwz gnu_debuglink crc        FAILED (rpmbuild.at:468)
277: spec parse                                      FAILED (rpmpython.at:70)
