What's the relevant difference? Are there any concerns about ABI/API?
Yes, it is required for the old .NET 4.0 non-async library.
Hmm, new guideline modification may apply for the pregenerated test data (source1) and could need also the sources in srpm. Have to investigate.
Note: I updated OpenRA to use the 2.0.0 MaxMind DB version. https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/pull/11285
Build fail: No matching package to install: 'nunit = 2.6.4'
does OpenRA work also with the MaxMind DB 2.1.x series?
Looking good so far. https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/pull/12132
Mysterically, the tarballs for 2.1.x disappeared from upstream GitHub. Notes about upcoming 2.2.0 got removed from releasenotes.md file.
Well, I fail to build a package for 2.1.2 because it requires .NET Core and NUnit 3. Both are not availabe in Fedora 25. Last version we can use is 2.0.0 therefore.
Note: https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/pull/12132#pullrequestreview-5363472 etc. indicates that OpenRA will not update MaxMind for .NET Core in the foreseeable future.
.NET Core is currently no option for Fedora.
