Proposed fix for misquote in pesign rpm macro
Description of problem:
I found this bug when trying to compile my own signed kernel. When specifying pe_signing_cert , the macro has a syntax error in it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# dnf info pesign
Name : pesign
Version : 0.112
Release : 22.fc28
Arch : x86_64
Size : 1.0 M
Source : pesign-0.112-22.fc28.src.rpm
Repo : @System
From repo : fedora
Summary : Signing utility for UEFI binaries
URL : https://github.com/vathpela/pesign
License : GPLv2
Description : This package contains the pesign utility for signing UEFI binaries as
: well as other associated tools.
Steps to Reproduce:
Add %define pe_signing_cert in kernel.spec (might work as instructed in the rpm macro itself but I have not tested because I build with mock: rpmbuild --define "pe_signing_cert signing key for test2" -ba ...)
Kernel built with specified key
See attachment for proposed fix
I pushed a fix to dist-git. Please build the package.

Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 29 on 2019-11-26.

Fedora 'version' of '29'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'

of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 29 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2019-11-26. Fedora 29 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
