The new behaviour is a bug.



I absolutely 100% agree.
If a third party wants their software to work with red hat/fedora then the third party needs to make their software integrates with red hat/ fedora and not the other way around.


Supplying compatability libraries is imho fine.
But creating a scenario where your operating is more likely to have a problem because a vendor doesn't have the will to build their src.rpm on the system they intend the package to be installed (thus using the modern rpm) on is just absolutely bonkers and is the WRONG thing for red hat/fedora to do.


Laziness should not be encouraged.
If a third party vendor is having difficulty getting their rpm to build on current fedora/red hat then the 3rd party vendor needs to fix their spec file.
