Install only newly recommended packages on upgrades with dnf/PackageKit/microdnf

We would like to change a default behavior dnf/PackageKit/microdnf to install only newly recommended packages on upgrades. Internally we will change exclude_from_weak_autodetect configuration option to True. exclude_from_weak_autodetect enables autodetection of unmet weak dependencies (Recommends or Supplements) of installed packages and blocks installation of packages satisfying already unmet dependencies. In other words: When you don't have the recommended package installed, it won't be automatically installed with future upgrades of the recommending package.

DNF/RPM Copy on Write enablement for all variants

RPM Copy on Write provides a better experience for Fedora Users as it reduces the amount of I/O and offsets CPU cost of package decompression. RPM Copy on Write uses reflinking capabilities in btrfs, which is the default filesystem starting from Fedora 33 for most variants. Note that this behavior is not being turned on by default for this Change.

Fedora Linux 36 Accepted Self-Contained Changes

glibc 32 Build Adjustments

The glibc32 package is a special package used by gcc and a few other packages to work around the lack of RPM multilib repository support in Koji. It is difficult to maintain, and the current approach raises questions regarding (L)GPL compliance.

Remove nscd

This proposal intends to remove the nscd cache for named services in Fedora 35. nscd is already planned for deprecation in Fedora 34. The functionality it currently provides can be achieved by using systemd-resolved for DNS caching and the sssd daemon for everything else.

Setuptools 58+

Update to a new upstream release of python-setuptools that is not completely compatible with previous releases. Since version 58+ upstream removed support for 2to3 during builds. This is a breaking change and projects are encouraged to port to a unified codebase.
