Fedora 30 Accepted Self Contained Changes Proposals

Make ambiguous python shebangs error

The /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-mangle-shebangs buildroot policy script will be changed to make the build fail when it sees an ambiguous python shebang, such as #!/usr/bin/python or #!/usr/bin/env python. (The script has been warning in these cases for 2 Fedora releases already, saying This will become an ERROR.)
