Is that really against coreutils? Based on http://marc.info/?l=util-linux-ng&m=145694736107128&w=2 (and https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=815922 ) it seems to be issue with runuser/su - therefore util-linux was IMHO correct.
Comment 3 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2016-06-13 05:05:33 EDT
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
