Thanks for reporting this issue Uwe, indeed, this slipped through unnoticed on my side.

I'll provide an updated package ASAP.

Thanks for the prompt feedback.

Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2020-05-07 11:24:20 UTC
FEDORA-EPEL-2020-d7baaced04 has been submitted as an update to Fedora EPEL 8. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-EPEL-2020-d7baaced04

Comment 4 Oliver Falk 2020-05-07 11:25:59 UTC
 it would be great, if you could test the updated package and provide positive karma (see the above link to Bodhi).


Comment 5 Uwe Sauter 2020-05-07 11:41:57 UTC
Removed python3-gobject, installed https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org//packages/meld/3.20.2/3.el8/noarch/meld-3.20.2-3.el8.noarch.rpm. python3-gobject was pulled in as dependency. Looks good.

Cannot log in to https://id.fedoraproject.org/login/fas to give "thumbs up" as my Red hat credentials don't work there.

Thanks again!

Comment 6 Oliver Falk 2020-05-07 14:50:33 UTC
 yes, FAS is different from the RH creds. But thanks for letting me know it works as expected!

This was an EasyFix - my pleasure :-)
