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.
FEDORA-EPEL-2020-d7baaced04 has been submitted as an update to Fedora EPEL 8. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-EPEL-2020-d7baaced04
it would be great, if you could test the updated package and provide positive karma (see the above link to Bodhi).
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.
yes, FAS is different from the RH creds. But thanks for letting me know it works as expected!
This was an EasyFix - my pleasure :-)
