Comment 2 Bryn M. Reeves 2015-12-16 17:47:09 UTC
I've updated the rawhide sos build to sos-3.2-1.f24. I'll give this a day or so of testing and then push a similar update to all supported branches.

Comment 4 Bryn M. Reeves 2015-12-16 18:09:36 UTC
Builds in comment #3 are missing the final tmp cleanup patch - without this we leave a stray, empty, mkdtemp directory lying around.

Fresh builds are here:
