  • ap/mariadb-10.5.13-x86_64-2.txz
    Install /etc/security/user_map.conf as /etc/security/ to
    protect it from being overwritten by future upgrades.
    Thanks to Markus Wiesner.
  • d/python3-3.9.9-x86_64-2.txz
    Do not patch posix_user platlib to use $HOME/.local/lib64 on 64-bit - use
    $HOME/.local/lib for all platforms. This avoids a warning from pip about the
    install location not matching between distutils and sysconfig. Note that this
    might require already installed modules to be moved from $HOME/.local/lib64
    to $HOME/.local/lib (or they could be removed and then reinstalled).
    At first this seemed to be a non-optimal solution for this issue, but other
    distributions are taking this same approach and it appears that the
    posix_user platlib setting has always been ignored until recently.
    If this causes any unexpected issues, let me know.
    Thanks to redneonglow and alijkl.

  • l/python-setuptools_scm-6.3.2-x86_64-1.txz
    This is needed when building some Python modules to correctly parse their
    metadata, as recently discovered with importlib_metadata and zipp. While
    we'll stick to the version of Markdown that we've got, it seems like a good
    idea to get this in before the release to help prevent people from running
    into similar “version 0.0.0” issues with other Python modules.
    Thanks to USUARIONUEVO.
  • l/python-tomli-1.2.2-x86_64-1.txz
    This is needed by setuptools_scm. Also, the SlackBuild contains a nice
    example of using a shim to setuptools for a Python module that
    only contains pyproject.toml and not
    Thanks to Heinz Wiesinger.
