DNF Better Counting

Right now, we estimate installed Fedora systems by counting unique IP addresses which show up in our updates mirror statistics. We need better data than that. There are some proposals for more complicated systems, but a quick thing we can do now to greatly improve what we have without a gigantic new infrastructure.

Build Python with -fno-semantic-interposition for better performance

We add the -fno-semantic-interposition compiler/linker flag when building Python interpreters, as it provides significant performance improvement, up to 27% depending on the workload. Users will no longer be able to use LD_PRELOAD to override a symbol from libpython, which we consider a good trade off for the speedup.

Replace Bazaar with Breezy

This change is about replacing the bzr package with breezy. Bzr (Bazaar) is a version control system, Breezy (brz) is a fork of Bazaar. Breezy will obsolete and replace Bazaar in Fedora 32.

Track Changes in Taiga

The current process allows contributors to propose changes in upcoming Fedora releases. However, the management of those feature proposals is cumbersome and requires several manual steps. This introduces more opportunity for error and reduces the time available to the Change Wrangler for more valuable contributions to Fedora. In particular, the current process includes artifacts and discussion in the Fedora Wiki, on mailing lists, FESCo tickets, Bugzilla tickets, and Docs tickets.

Limit Scriptlet Usage of core packages

Remove direct scriptlet calls from "core packages" (those that are used to build minimal container image). The packages can still affect changes during installation by placing files in the correct locations to trigger registered external programs.
